A Reversal of Fortune
Amazing… Iraq isn’t Vietnam. Who knew? For all those panicked by the thought of the war being a thirty year debacle where we would leave with a surrendering of civility and decency to weirdos worse than those we deposed, FoxNews has given us a ray of hope. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,414364,00.html
Hard to believe, eh? One of the most volatile districts in a nation that is being torn apart by a “civil war”, and we just turned over control to the sentient citizens. The troops that we are leaving behind in that area are there to train the resident Iraqi forces. History indeed will vindicate right action in harsh time. Notice, Obama and the Democrats have stopped talking about the need to pull out of Iraq now. It seems very telling to me. The second things are looking up, we must find something else to be negative about. The DNC mantra has very little substance… rather, it seems that their entire plank (because it isn’t enough for a platform) is built upon making the Conservatives look like baby-stealing demons instead of competent philosophy. In the space of eight years, a nation has gone from being dominated by a dictator to being a democratic nation that has rejected anarchical terrorists. Looking at this, I have a very difficult time believing that the war was a horrendous idea… look at the coming results.
