To all the rabid Iraq critics. Security has be the first goal. ONCE you fix the security problems, then it is possible to have political and economic progress. It a false choice being presented here.
Democrats and their enablers in the US Junk Media are once again simply changing the standard because they are losing the argument.
And news I expected.
The fact that the press actually promoted the idea that "Al-Qaeda In Iraq" is not part of Al-Qaeda continues to amaze me.

Prior to the war the libs told us there would be tens of thousands of American military dead because Saddam's army was tough, huge, motivated. The libs were wrong.
They then told us we would not be successful until Saddam was caught. When he was caught, the libs told us it was no big deal.
Then the libs told us it was fantasy to believe that the Iraqis could actually hold elections. Well, we all remember the purple fingers. But then the libs told us the vote was no big deal and meant nothing.
Then the libs told us the Iraqis would never be able to put together a constitution. When the Iraqis did do it, the libs told us it was no big deal.
Then the libs told us the war was lost, that a surge would only make things worse. Now, they are admitting that the surge is working and things are getting better. But libs are libs. They will always put a negative spin on anything they do not believe in.
The negative spin now is "Well, the surge may be working, but the Iraqi government will never function".
The libs also tell us that if things turn around, that the American military and Iraqi security forces start to win (which they have already admitted), that it would be, and I quote, "A problem for the Democrats".
It is a very sad day when members of the American leadership (which is what the Congress is) tell us that if America wins the war, if the American military makes gains, turns the tide, that it is a 'problem' for certain American leaders.
Rather than being adult, being true leaders, and telling us it is GREAT that we have finally turned the tide, that it is GOOD for our country, they say winning is a problem.
Never forget that message that the Dims themselves have uttered:
An American victory is bad. Which implies that an American loss is good.
That would be grudgingly concede. If that. The Democrats worst nightmare would be success for our troops in Iraq and success for the vast majority of Iraqi people that want peace and stability.
Our troops are doing their part very well. The Iraqi politicians are failing to do their part.
The Surge is Working and the Rats are Trapped
