Snatching Victory in Iraq

The surge continues to be an amazing success in Iraq, as the London Times reports.

Al Qaida is on the run and being cut down in its last bastion of Mosul.

In times of war, one must watch one's retreating adversary and be prepared for it to pivot and attack. The same is true of one's political opponents.

Witness Barack Obama. Having won the Democratic nomination vowing to end this unwinnable and disastrous war in Iraq he now sounds willing to stay long enough to allow the Iraqi government and our military to win it.

Talk about a pivot.

And to the Democratic base that nominated him: Suckers!

UPDATE: Interesting how the Times of London gets the story but the New York Times ignores it. Only bad news stories about Iraq are "fit to print?" Or maybe its because the London Times is less psychologically invested in our defeat than the NYT folks. Whatever, the NYT is no longer this country's paper of record.

Iraq’s Prime Minister declared Saurday the war all but over, that terrorism has been defeated in the country. And Bush-hating Libs can’t even admit that the surge worked. Lol…

Poor domestic insurgent LibDems, they were counting on us losing that war. What false issue are they going to hang their power grab on now? And what the heck will they do if the economy recovers?! Their entire platform will have to be propped up on, uh... global warming or something! Lol…

They did it to themselves by abusing their power to advance their Radical anti-American Liberal Agenda. Libs always push too far. Always.
