A Somber Yet Hopeful Anniversary
No, the war hasn't gone "perfectly." Yes, there have been problems, but in planning and execution. I'm sure it's not where anyone in the Bush Administration wanted it to be at this point. But, we're there. An evil dictator and his sociopathic sons are gone- permanently. The surge seems to be working.
On the flip side, surrounding Islamofascist countries are doing everything they can (under the radar, of course) to keep Iraq from becoming a democratic country. If they're against something we're doing, to me, it means we must be doing something nice.
Y'all knew where I was going to stand on this one. President Bush is not the perfect president (far from it), but he's been right, in principle, on this one. More importantly, we still have boots on the ground- and they deserve our unconditional support.
Mr. President, get it done... then bring them home.
