Al-Qaeda Having Problems In Iraq

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.

“They are turning. We are talking to people who we believe have worked for al-Qaeda in Iraq and want to reconcile and have peace,” 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.  Does not fit the template.  And worse, it will contradict what the left is saying.

Hugo Chaves’ Version Of The ‘Fairness Doctrine’

The President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, answered critics of his government who say he is “becoming increasingly authoritarian and cracking down on dissent” by saying that foreigners who publicly criticize him or his government while visiting Venezuela will be expelled from the country.

“How long are we going to allow a person — from any country in the world — to come to our own house to say there’s a dictatorship here, that the president is a tyrant, and nobody does anything about it?” Chavez asked during his weekly television and radio program.

Sounds eerily familiar doesn’t it? Proponents of the Fairness Doctrine appear to have a lot in common with the hemisphere’s idiot.
