November 22, 2008 Victory in Iraq Day

Doing the job the OLM will not, Congratulations to our Military on their Victory in Iraq!

Thank you to the GatewayPundit

Thank you to all who made this possible.
Thank you for serving.

Two years ago this war was lost.
The American public was tired of the daily bombings and the reports of death. Thanks to the efforts of the media and continual pounding from Democratic Party members America was ready to give up on this front and quit. America was told was the worst foreign policy decision in its history. Some believed this was the worst slaughter of American lives in history. Some even scoffed at the genocide that would occur if we left. America no longer understand why victory was essential or why war was called war. The images of Saddam Hussein being pulled out of a spider hole were a distant memory.
America had lost its will to fight.

But, President George W. Bush would not accept defeat.

Despite the best efforts of Democrats and their partners in the media, President Bush understood what was best for this country and what was best for Iraq and the Middle East.
A new fighting plan with a surge of troops was organized.
A new general named Petraeus was put in charge.
Gathering of Eagles New York has more on the celebration.

America would finish the fight and bring democracy to Iraq.
President Bush would give it one last try.

Today, the rest is history.
