Eh, it’s just evidence of progress in the war directly related to the ‘surge’ strategy. The Iraqis helping al-Qaeda are now turning on them in the face of the surge and their barbarity.
â€œThey are turning. We are talking to people who we believe have worked for al-Qaeda in Iraq and want to reconcile and have peace,â€ said Colonel Ricky Gibbs, commander of the 4th Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, which oversees the area.
he reporter on the ground in Doura, Iraq, characterizes it as a rebellion in the ranks. It’s a good thing. It is the kind of progress that leads to security, that leads to the kind of political solutions we’re all looking for.
It’s all good news for the country, Democrats excepted. It’s not good news for them, which is the reason they declared the surge a failure two weeks ago and just two weeks into the mission. They don’t want to even give it a chance to succeed. In this war, the Democrats are invested in defeat. Don’t hold your breath expecting to see this on your network news or major newspapers.Â Does not fit the template.Â And worse, it will contradict what the left is saying.
