Smells Like... Victory
Al Qaida in Iraq is getting its ass kicked by our boys, the troop surge has been a resounding success by any number of measures, and as promised last September, the surge elements have been drawn down. On the political front, at least 12 of the 18 benchmarks for Iraqi progress have been met.
One can only chuckle as the nattering nabobs of negativism turn tail, like this one, who has whitewashed his prediction of the surge failure by removing references to his criticism from his website. No apologies forthcoming from some religious leftists who also predicted doom.
One senses that no matter how much success we see, how much progress in defeating terrorists abroad, there will always be a leftist cheering section, both secular and ostensibly religious at home rooting for the defeat of our forces, because they can't stand the idea that Bush might just have been right.
