For over four years, the Democrats have told us we can't win in Iraq, that the war is lost, that the surge was useless, that Iraqis weren't capable of democracy, that the war was immoral, etc, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah. You know the drill.
Fortunately, neither the Bush administration, our troops, nor the Iraqis listened.
I hope Hillary has suspended her disbelief by now, because the surge was a great success. Al Qaeda has been driven out of most of Iraq, and now has it's lone stronghold in the north.
And they are about to get their butts stomped there too.
Not by the americans, but BY IRAQI SECURITY FORCES. It's been a long time coming, but I'm sure glad the time is here.
Iraqi security forces have begun a "decisive" final offensive against al Qaeda in Iraq to push the Sunni Islamist militants out of their last major stronghold in the north, Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said on Friday.
[U.S. military commanders] describe Mosul, capital of Nineveh province, as al Qaeda's last major urban stronghold in Iraq.
"We have set up an operations room in Nineveh to complete the final battle with al Qaeda along with guerrillas and members of the previous regime," Maliki said, referring to other Sunni militants the Shi'ite-led government says remain loyal to former leader Saddam Hussein.
"Today our forces started moving to Mosul. What we are planning in Nineveh will be decisive," he said during a ceremony for victims of violence in the holy Shi'ite city of Kerbala in southern Iraq, broadcast on state television.
"Now we have a real army. The days when the militants could do anything in front of our armed forces are gone," Maliki said.
Now you know why the economy has become the number one issue in the presidential election. It's because we are winning in Iraq. The Iraqi forces are taking control of their own country. Al Qaeda, who was responsible for the vast majority of the bombings and chaos, will be beaten. Sometime soon, the Democrats may actually become right about one thing regarding Iraq - the troops might get to start coming home, because their job will be over, as Iraqis take control of their own country, as was planned all along.
Sorry, Defeatocrats, looks like Iraq will be a success after all. Better luck next time. No, strike that. The next time, I hope you join the side of the righteous, instead of acting as useful idiot tools for the enemy.
