The beginning of the end...

The Iraq war is entering its final phase. For more coverage, go here, here, and especially here.

This election is roughly equivalent to the Allied victory at the Bulge in 1944, or the taking of Okinawa in 1945. There may be a few battles in the future, and more troops will undoubtedly die, but final victory is pretty much assured. The high Sunni turnout indicates that even the homegrown insurgents have turned against the Al-Qaida nutjobs. Zarqawi must be especially nervous about where he is going to sleep tonight.

However, Republicans like you have been saying it's the begining of the end since May 1, 2003.

It was July of 2003 when I went from thinking it was a good idea to realizing we had all been had.

The question is by who with all the revelations about the Oil-for-Food scam. remember, if he US hadn't have invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein would still be in power and would still be thumbing his nose at the UN. He would still be running his Oil-for-Food scam and Kofi the Appeaser and his friends would still be getting rich at the expense of the Iraqi people. Saddam would still be running Al Qaeda training camps and paying of Palestinian suicide bombers. Sadam would still be trying to rebuild his WMD capability and the UN would still be issuing strongly worded resolutions telling him to play nice or else the UN would get really, really, really mad for the 100th time. Soooooooo, who do you think was the person who fooled us? If you said President Bush, you obviously have some issues with reality.

The point is, Bob, that things have been improving steadily since you threw up your hands in despair. I'll bet by the 2006 elections many Democrats will be eagerly jumping back on the Iraq bandwagon.

That's why the President is so boldly taking credit for sending in the troops in the first place. He knows that in a few short months Iraq will be transformed from a hopeless disaster to a brilliant foreign policy decision.
