How Not To Fight A War, courtesy of the embarrassing Harry and Nancy show. Make this 0-41. Nice job Congress.

The last line from the link above comes from someone who actually knows what the hell is going on over there:
Michael Yon reports on the latest MIRACLE in Iraq at FOX News......please read the Michael Yon link!!

"It’s been a long time since I’ve seen any fighting. I can’t remember my last shootout: it’s been months. The nightmare is ending. Al Qaeda is being crushed. The Sunni tribes are awakening all across Iraq and foreswearing violence for negotiation. Many of the Shia are ready to
stop the fighting that undermines their ability to forge and manage a new government. This is a complex and still delicate denouement, and the war may not be over yet. But the Muslims are saying it’s time to come home. And the Christians are saying it’s time to come home. They are weary, and there is much work to be done."

The refusal to enthusiastically support this fragile democracy in the heart of the Middle East is a moral failure of the greatest sort. That the anti-war left cannot recognize the opportunity in front of us is a revelation of their deep alienation from the world as it exists. If America is forced to withdraw by the Democrats and civil war erupts, it will be Cambodia 2.0, and the American left will own a second genocide in a single generation.

I still think Democrats are underestimating just how bad this looks:

"The days of a free lunch are over," said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Yes, a Democratic senator just referred to funding an ongoing military operation as a "free lunch." Presumably, he meant a "free lunch" for President Bush--a sentiment that probably plays well for the Far Left.

We should have moved past who is for or against the war and whether we should be there. We should be looking foward how we can help the people of Iraq, but the "progressives" who run the democrats are regressing, hence have lost the right to refer to themselves as progressive. No matter how much Her Highness wants to use that to hide her liberal agenda.
Back to this great piece. Yon has proven to be a real journalist in Iraq. His work will never be carried by the MSM outside of Fox for it tells another point of view
