>Iraq The Model sees more clearly than the ‘war is lost’ crowd

>It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a couple of bloggers in Baghdad have greater moral clarity than the anti-war brigade in the West. They’ve lived their entire lives in Iraq, mostly under the terror of Saddam Hussein’s murderous regime, and are much more able to comment on how things are going. What’s also impressive is that when the US gets it wrong they comment on that as honestly as when things go well.

I had said it over and over again that some of us in Iraq and America are sending wrong messages to the terrorists and the dictators behind them; in fact I wasn’t surprised when I saw Zawahiri appear on al-Jazeera to announce America’s defeat, not long after Reid did.

Anyone who thinks that this is not a propaganda war against the weak-minded in Australia, the US, the UK etc is denying reality. The tactics of blowing up women and children in marketplaces have no hope of achieving any territorial advantage other than in the whimsical psyche of those whose moral compasses need to go back to their manufacturer for resetting.

Zawahiri claims al-Qaeda has won and Reid claims America has lost but I see only a war that’s still ongoing and I see no victory for al-Qaeda or any other entity. On the contrary I see that al-Qaeda has the shortest stick.

That’s exactly correct. Here’s another rhetorical thought experiment. If there was unlimited time to fight in Iraq then A) would Al-Qaeda and its supporters win or B) would the US and its supporters win? Once the US entered WW2 in December 1941 and the Soviet Union turned against Germany in 1942 the result of the war was never in doubt. Did people look at the unbelievable slaughter that was taking place and decide to pull up stumps and go home because it was all too hard? No. They prosecuted the war to its inevitable conclusion – which took another three years and millions
of lives.

We are going through a fierce war and sending more wrong messages could only further complicate an already complicated situation and create more mess that would be exploited by Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia for their own purposes—more iron-fist control on the peoples and treasures of the region and pushing the middle east to crises and confrontations with the world not forgetting spreading their dark, backward ideologies.

It’s to their eternal shame that the cultural relativists that infest our society and make up a large part of those saying that the war is lost cannot say that those we are fighting are evil and culturally backward.

The American forces should stay in Iraq and yes, reinforcements should be sent if the situation required. Not only that, these forces should be prepared to expand their operations whenever and wherever necessary in the region to strike hard on the nests of evil that not only threaten the middle east but seeking to blackmail the whole world in the ugliest way through pursuing nuclear weapons in a feverish desire to destroy themselves along with everyone else. It’s a delusional obsession with power derived from the false belief that only they possess absolute justice while denying the right to exist to anyone who disagrees with them.

Hellooooooooooo. Is anyone listening?

We must keep fighting those criminals and tyrants until they realize that the freedom-loving peoples of the region are not alone. Freedom and living in dignity are the aspirations of all mankind and that’s what unites us; not death and suicide. When freedom-lovers in other countries reach out for us they are working for the future of everyone tyrants and murderers like Ahmedinejad, Nesrallah, Assad and Qaddafi must realize that we are not their possessions to pass on to their sons or henchmen. We belong to the human civilization and that was the day we gave what we gave to our land and other civilizations. They can’t take out our humanity with their ugly crimes and they can’t force us to back off. The world should ask them to leave our land before asking the soldiers of freedom to do so.

“Freedom and living in dignity are the aspirations of all mankind” – what a great line. Apparently, though, to those on the Left one of the reasons that we should leave Iraq is that these people are not culturally able to adapt to democracy.

The cost of liberating Europe was enormous in blood and treasure and thereafter it took half a century of American military presence to protect Europe’s nations from subsequent threats—now if that made sense during a cold war, and it did, then I don’t understand why would anyone demand a pullout from Iraq (and maybe later the middle east) when the enemies are using every evil technique, from booby trapped dead animals to hijacked civilian aircrafts to kill us and destroy the human civilization.

Yes my friends, I will call for war just as powerfully the bad guys do and I must show them that I’m stronger than they are because those do not understand the language of civilization and reason. They understand only power, and with power they took over their countries and held their peoples hostages. Everything they accomplished was through absolute control over the assets of their nations through murder, torture, repression and intimidation.

The policy of the United States and her allies needs to adjust to make better use of the energy God-or nature or whatever you name it-blessed them with. We need to see a firm policy not afraid of making tough decisions replace the Byzantine debate of withdrawal. This became America’s destiny the day it became a superpower. A destiny to show responsibility toward her own people and toward the world, and running away from this responsibility won’t do any good. Otherwise those who prefer to bury their heads in the dirt today will be cursed forever for abandoning their duty when they were most capable. I don’t understand why someone who has all the tools for victory would refuse to fight the enemy that reminds us every day that it’s evil with all the daily beheadings, torture and violations of all humane laws and values.

Some will keep on blaming America and her policies and they will consider anything America did and does wrong whether America stayed or left, fought or ran away, negotiated or boycotted. There will always be those who blame America for everything that goes wrong in this world but that doesn’t mean America has to listen to them. America instead should listen to the spirit of America and what it stands for.
Reaping the fruit won’t be today, it will be in the future after patience and great fighting.

I often wonder how history will record the actions of those opposed to the War on Terror and fighting Al-Qaeda in Iraq? I can’t help but think that in a few decades’ time when Islamist extremists are defeated and the history is being written that people will look at the tepid response to acts of Islamist aggression under the Clinton administration and really wonder about the character of the people involved. George W Bush will then be seen as the man who decided that evil cannot be allowed to go unpunished and his presidency will be rehabilitated in much the same way as Harry S Truman’s is currently being re-evaluated in light of the major issues he faced and the positive outcomes that time has proven he achieved.
