Iraq:Much Is Happening, Despite The Leftards And ChickenHearts.

This has been a busy news week, culminating with the Gathering of Eagles, and the parade of the ChickenHearts to the Pentagon to demand an end to the GWOT, eventhough they always say “out of Iraq.” In tribute to our young men and women serving in our all-volunteer military, our veterans and their families, and equally for the ChickenHearts, I would like to share a quote I found at Gateway Pundit.

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 – 1873)

I only wish I could be as eloquent.

As for events in Iraq, many of you know about the three chlorine gas bombings in or near Fallujah today, but perhaps not the details, or more importantly, the reason for it, and who the targets for their acts of terrorism were.
The official Multi-National Force report is here, and it should be noted, that this is the fifth such attack since 28 Jan. Here is another report, from a news source, with slightly different details, but with one clarifying point:

The second bomber targeted a tribal leader opposed to al-Qaeda nearby when he blew up his tanker outside the man’s home, killing two people and making six ill because of exposure to the chemical.

This takes on added significance, as Al Qaida is Sunni, and they are attacking Sunni’s in Al Anbar, and not our troops or the Shiia. One must stop and consider this as a strong indication of a turning point for Al Qaida, and the battle against them. Omar at Iraq the Model has an excellent post about this topic, “One thing al-Qaeda excels at; making new enemies.”

I’ve read at least two very optimistic reports from al-Almada in the last week about purported victories of the tribes and police over al-Qaeda in Ramadi and Fallujah. I was reluctant to trust the accuracy of the reports which sited unnamed sources but now seeing the reaction of al-Qaeda suggests that the action of the tribes was so painful that al-Qaeda retaliated in the way we see today.

I had posted on this blog in January, on how things were going in Al Anbar, with numerous links to subsequent events in the comment section. Events in Al Anbar seem to indicate a major shift in the support for Al Qaida, to being against them, and the additional MNF and IA troops haven’t even begun arriving in Al Anbar, as part of Gen. Petraeus’ surge. If this continues, they won’t be needed, and could be deployed elsewhere, perhaps Diyala province, which has become troublesome.
Finally, after reviewing the above information, and how events are developing there, there is now a poll, released today, where 5,000 Iraqi’s make a clear statement. “Iraqis: life is getting better.”

MOST Iraqis believe life is better for them now than it was under Saddam Hussein, according to a British opinion poll published today.

The survey of more than 5,000 Iraqis found the majority optimistic despite their suffering in sectarian violence since the American-led invasion four years ago this week.

So for those that support our troops and their mission, our President, and the GWOT, take notice and take heart, we are achieving significant results, despite the lack of coverage from the LameStream media. For the ChickenHearts and their traiterous friends, stick this in your bong and blaze it.
