VICTORY Is Not Defeat

The Retreat Caucus Didn’t Learn The Last Time

Bush: Will he stay the course as others run? “America good! Al Qaeda bad!” – A trader in the Qatana bazaar, Ramadi, Iraq

Rich Lowry…NY Post

THIS is a sentiment that the Iraqi trader felt safe to utter as a visiting U.S. gen eral passed by, according to John Burns of The New York Times, only after a furtive glance “up and down the narrow refuse-strewn street to check who might be listening.” In a microcosm, this is the reason why we’re finally making progress against al Qaeda in Iraq: The protection afforded by American combat power has made it possible for Iraqis in Sunni areas to turn against the terror group.

In a global struggle against Islamic extremism, it is an incontestably welcome development that ordinary Sunnis in the Arab heartland are spurning al Qaeda. The extremist group has been on a campaign of savagery in Iraq that has discredited its own cause. The grassroots revolt against it means that it is within our reach to deny al Qaeda its most important current geopolitical objective, which is plunging Iraq into a bloody chaos in which it can thrive.

But a group of Republican senators have picked precisely this moment to call for deconstructing the troop surge that has begun to give us the upper hand against al Qaeda. They thus reveal a key dishonesty in the debate over the war: Everyone professes to want to fight al Qaeda in Iraq – as opposed to policing the sectarian war – but the number of politicians willing to support the means to that end is ever-dwindling.

  1. “group of Republican senators have picked precisely this moment to call for deconstructing the troop surge that has begun to give us the upper hand against al Qaeda”

    Scumbags. The only thing I can think of on this is that they so want to capture the vote of those they will never capture the vote of. They do no more homework than the rest of the dolts there.

    They should know better. Why don’t they know better? I don’t think they are really paying any attention as they are too busy doing their jobs; which I guess is where you, I and many others have different ideas about what they think their job is.

    I’m thinking they have created their jobs. Al Gore screams about the end of the world through “global warming” and that becomes their jobs. Why deal with today when you can wax rhetorical or poetical about a tomorrow that doesn’t really matter; cause they’ll just create another job later.

    This is pretty much why I still stand behind the president, mistakes, human foibles, policy disagreements and all.

    The other guys are playing a disingenuous game of trying to keep their jobs above all else.

  3. Everyone wants to be a General, newsflash to reps: You can’t even do your own jobs right.
    Try listening to President Bush and our Generals and stop trying to do their jobs for them frankly congress can’t do their own jobs right.
    To Congress: I’m getting tired of you acting stupid.

  4. This next round will go down in bigger flames than the last one.

    We are in the majority and we came to the attention of the politicos over the ILLEGAL immigration ignorance.

    The politicos haven’t seen anything yet.

  6. It is hard for the Leftinistra to have to actually listen to the silent majority which is silent no more. They are more comfortable with their sheeple that suck their crap from the sewer pipes.

  7. I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m getting tired of babysitting these nutb@lls.
    Anyone get a survey from Sen. John Ensign- chairman of the NRSC? I did and I let them have it all from the hindu prayer to the GWOT to SPP to immigration.
    I don’t get it they ask what we think and do the opposite, sounds like kids to me.
    We need a clean slate, that means the idiot dems too.
