Oh yeah, and I don't care what Murtha says but there are not 100,000 terroists in Iraq. And most of the terrorist insurgents that are in Iraq are NOT Iraqi. They're foreigners, mostly al qaeda, and ALL of them entered the country illegally.
Compared to Vietnam, in which ALL the people we fought were actually Vietnamese. There were not Laosians, or Cambodians or Koreans or Chinese showing up to fight us in Vietnam. They were Vietnamese, and most of them were organized fighting units, unlike the terrorists.
And no one mentions it, but at this point, the U.S. military and coalition forces have easily killed over 100,000 to 120,000 terrorists and militant hussein supporters by this time in Iraq. Mostly foreign terrorists. That's a 44 to 1 kill ratio IN FAVOR of our military. That rate of losses is unsustainable for the terrorist forces, especailly as the Iraqi military and police forces, over 150,000 strong at this point, continue to stand up over time, better securing the borders with Syria and Iran and Saudi Arabia. As outlined in that letter that was found in what was left of the safe house that al Zarkawi was killed in, they cannot take much more of that kind of kill ratio that works against them, and the replacements they do get from other countries are not as good as the ones they've lost. They're running out of money, the Iraqi military and police forces are numerous, getting bigger, and better trained than the terroists, and they're running out of weapons and not getting more from Iran.
Time is not on their side, Zarkawi said. Despite the Democrats and their desire to los this war, time IS on OUR side. :)

Please tell me where you got your figures, I need the source or sources for another arguement elsewhere!
