While socialist moonbats like Code Pink and meatbrain yearn for our defeat and attack those who claim the surge is working…reports again are popping up about the success of the surge as Petraeus is due soon to make his report.
As General David Petraeus briefs Congress this week on Iraq, it’s clear his surge has achieved remarkable results. The most crucial is that the U.S. can no longer be defeated militarily in Iraq, which could not be said a year ago. The question now is whether Washington will squander these gains by withdrawing so quickly that we could still lose politically.
When Gen. David Petraeus testifies before Congress tomorrow, he will step into an American political landscape dramatically different from the one he faced when he last spoke on Capitol Hill seven months ago.
This time Gen. Petraeus returns to Washington having led one of the most remarkably successful military operations in American history. His antiwar critics, meanwhile, face a crisis of credibility – having confidently predicted the failure of the surge, and been proven decidedly wrong.
But this we could have anticipated, since the moonbats have been on the wrong side of every conflict in history.
No one can deny the dramatic improvements in security in Iraq achieved by Gen. Petraeus, the brave troops under his command, and the Iraqi Security Forces. From June 2007 through February 2008, deaths from ethno-sectarian violence in Baghdad have fallen approximately 90%. American casualties have also fallen sharply, down by 70%.
Al Qaeda in Iraq has been swept from its former strongholds in Anbar province and Baghdad. The liberation of these areas was made possible by the surge, which empowered Iraqi Muslims to reject the Islamist extremists who had previously terrorized them into submission. Any time Muslims take up arms against Osama bin Laden, his agents and sympathizers, the world is a safer place.
Keep watching for the articles, and the anti-war people as they make asses of themselves trying to shout Petraeus down, like they did the last time. Little is accomplished for their side when they firmly establish themselves as kooknuts on the fringe.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aAU76bqL4Y%5D
Here’s Code Pink getting carted out of the hearing, the last time Petreaus testified about the surge. They’re nothing but domestic terrorists.
