We've defeated Iraq's army, captured the butcher of Baghdad and completely destroyed his fascist regime and his evil, murderous party. Saddam Hussein and his ability to acquire, manufacture and deploy weapons of mass destruction and or to bring harm to his neighbors or to his own people is history. We won! Saddam has been sacked!!
Might as well get that out in the open and past us. The America-hating cowards and liars on the left should get over it. WE WON THE DAMN WAR ALREADY!
Hurrah to president Bush and thanks to our courageous men and women in uniform! May God bless them all for their valiant sacrifices in the defense of freedom! The nation and the world owes them all a great debt of gratitude.
Now that the war is over, our mission is to help the people of Iraq build their new government and recruit and train adequate security forces to defend themselves from terrorists or other outside invaders. And this mission is just about complete too. The liberated people of Iraq have installed their new constitution and are on the eve of electing their permanent new government under that constitution. And the job of recruiting and training new security forces is well underway and will be completed soon!
All of this accomplished despite the random acts of violence perpetrated by criminal terrorists who set roadside bombs and or blow themselves up taking innocent men, women and children with them. Hurrah again to President Bush and our troops for having the intestinal fortitude and courage in seeing the mission through! God bless them all, their job will soon be complete and we can start bringing our people home! What a glorious day that will be! Hallelujah!!
So, no thanks to the legions of cowardly hand-wringers on the America-hating, freedom-hating left, we once again brilliantly deployed our magnificent American fighting forces and with our loyal allies, took the evil doers head on and won the damned war. We defeated Saddam Hussein. We defeated Osama bin Laden. We defeated the Taliban. We've liberated the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and have cleared the way for democracy and freedom to flourish in the Middle East! And, in doing so we've blown a huge hole in the plans of terrorists and totalitarians the whole world over. Just like in the past defeats of fascism, Nazism, Communism and totalitarianism, war is sometimes necessary and sometimes does solve problems after all.
The question is not whether or not the war is winnable (it was), it's what happens after we leave? It could take time before the Iraqi government and their security forces are stable and fully up to speed. And no doubt there are greedy, evil eyes looking on. Who will defend the Iraqis from the Iranians and others? How do they avoid being overrun by terrorists or consumed by bloody civil wars? Can we depend on the United Nations to keep the peace? Is there a NATO of the Middle East? Or an alliance of free or peace-loving states in the Middle East willing to join forces to combat terrorism in their own lands? Will the current coalition hang together long enough to ensure peace in the region? Can we count on France, Germany and Russia to help keep the peace? Or do we abandon the newly liberated people in their hour of need and let it all turn back to some new evil totalitarian regime?
We would all be speaking German if these people were around during World War II. It's a disgrace.
I think Murtha's sleep apnea is damaging his brain.
All in very short order too.
I totally agree!
Well said. If you run for POTUS, you have my full support.
great points....well written
Militarily,, we won the Vietnam War too, but that didn't keep us from losing.
But to be reckoned a win it has to be generally recognized by everybody to be so.
Bush got the Saddam's 'Al Samoud 2' missles without launching a single shot.
Thank God for GWB.
Victory is the word liberals lothe.
If it is done right, the longer training will result in a top notch efficient military, much to the dismay of terr perps and TROP dictators of the region.
Well said my FRiend. We will never abandon our troops. We have and shall prevail in victory.
U.S.: 'Chemical Ali' in custody

Al-Majid is now in U.S. custody.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as "Chemical Ali," a cousin of Saddam Hussein and the man thought to have ordered the 1988 chemical attack on Kurds, is in U.S. custody, the U.S. military said Thursday.
Most accounts of the massacre estimate more than 5,000 Kurds died in the attack.
You can say that again. You should see how they flip out when you past that word with a picture of the American flag! I have added the coalitions flag to the mix too. A good reminder that its more than Americans fighting the terrorists. Sometimes we forget that.
Thanks Jim. This is exactly what I keep telling people. Sometimes they give me strange looks.
But I wonder what these people exactly think that "winning a war" is supposed to look like.
We will win the global war on terrorism too - if the Democrats don't shut it down.
Is there any chance you could tell us how you really feel ..??
