US Successes in Iraq

Although unheralded in the liberal American press, there are indications that the US is prevailing in parts of Anbar and other provinces.

John Burns of the NYT has the interesting take on this phenomenon, which shows that a determined show of strength will prevail. Of course, the left wing of the Democratic party is so heavily invested in an American defeat that no amount of good news will convince them to do the heavy lifting their stoned slacker adherents so abhor.

Elsewhere, the NYT serves as Liberal Death Star for the ostrich denial crew here and here

None of the consequences of a US withdrawal are really explored, and they would be catastrophic across the region, perhaps even igniting a region-wide war.
