    How We Won in Iraq

    The Surge didn’t work, say the Democrats. The Anbar Awakening was happening before the Surge. They’re so off-base that calling them wrong ought to embarrass wrongness.The Surge was a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for victory in Iraq. The sufficient condition — making Al Qaeda uncool — just would not have happened had we not followed through on our commitment to free Iraq from the | Read More »

Key graf:Over the past year, many have proposed setting a deadline for withdrawal.

    In 2002 and 2003: Bad Judgments of Obama about Soon-to-start Iraq War

    In 2002 and 2003, bad judgments of Obama about the soon-to-start Iraq War cast doubt about Obama’s ability to be Commander-In-Chief.

    What would happen if the U.S. won a war but the media didn’t tell the American public?

    London’s Sunday Times called it “the culmination of one of the most spectacular victories of the war on terror.” A terrorist force that once numbered more than 12,000, with strongholds in the west and central regions of Iraq, has over two years been reduced to a mere 1,200 fighters, backed against the wall in the northern city of Mosul. The destruction of al-Qaida in Iraq | Read More »

    {W}hy would anyone vote for McCain? {Copy-edited}

    I would rather cut off my leg with a plastic knife th{a}n vote for that war{}mongering old man. I mean really, 100 years in Iraq?

    Bush to be the Truman of our day?

    By no means is any of the criticism directed toward “The One” unjustified. My primary concern is by heaping such large amounts of reprobation on him (should this be capitalized?), the risk arises of diminishing the overall message. Continuous negative discourse, though well justified (and the true Lord knows plenty of opportunities are being provided on a daily basis by the hopechangehope express), I feel | Read More »

    Does Obama Support the Troops?

    He voted AGAINST funding for our troops to provide them with ammunition, body armor, food, and other essential supplies to keep them alive and defeat their enemy.He has NEVER used the words “victory” or “honor” in laying out his plans for Iraq.He is effectively telling our courageous fighting warriors in Iraq that they aren’t good enough to defeat the enemy.*He voted AGAINST a Senate resolution | Read More »

    Solving McCain’s Iraq Problem

    Let’s cut to the chase:  last week should have been a good week on Iraq for John McCain and it wasn’t.  In an ideal world, of course, every week should be a good week on Iraq for McCain.  It is his signature issue and he should be scoring points on it given the dramatic success that is manifesting itself in that country.  But last week | Read More »

    David Petraeus Is A Very Smart Man

    An example of his intelligence can be found here:The top U.S. military commander in Iraq isn’t buying the increasingly popular idea of a publicly stated timetable for American troop withdrawal.Gen. David Petraeus, the Iraq commander, said in an interview with McClatchy that the situation in Iraq is too volatile to “project out, and to then try to plant a flag on, a particular date.”With violence | Read More »

    Obama Surrogate Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says “Surge Was Not Effective.”

    This is a stunning interview with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Just get a load of this part: CBSNews.com: But isn’t it somewhat ironic that it may be the surge that he opposed, that John McCain supported, that allows Senator Obama, if he becomes president, to begin withdrawing troops from a much more stable situation? Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Look, **the whole stated purpose of the | Read More »

Porter reported to friends and family back home.The email got onto the internet and spread like wildfire.The point is not that the email is true.
