Victory in Iraq Day: November 22, 2008

If we don't celebrate it, who will?

Zombietime.com has decided to declare this Saturday, November 22, 2008 to be Victory in Iraq Day:

We won. The Iraq War is over.

I declare November 22, 2008 to be “Victory in Iraq Day.” (Hereafter known as “VI Day.”)

By every measure, The United States and coalition forces have conclusively defeated all enemies in Iraq, pacified the country, deposed the previous regime, successfully helped to establish a new functioning democratic government, and suppressed any lingering insurgencies. The war has come to an end. And we won.

What more indication do you need? An announcement from the outgoing Bush administration? It’s not gonna happen. An announcement from the incoming Obama administration? That’s really not gonna happen. A declaration of victory by the media? Please. Don’t make me laugh. A concession of surrender by what few remaining insurgents remain in hiding? Forget about it.

There’s not much I can add to this other than to give it my complete and whole-hearted support. After all, if we don’t celebrate this victory, who will?
