General Shows Iraqi Progress

It might be hard for the MoveOn base of the democrat Party to smear him this time.

American hero General David Petraeus, a four star General, winner of the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, Distinguished Service Medal, Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit, and the Bronze Star Medal, has cited a 60 percent decline in violence in Iraq over the last six months, making victory all but inevitable.

He reported that civilian deaths have plunged to levels not seen since early 2006, before the democrats began their slow-bleed strategy.

Petraeus, offering truth to the false NIE report, said the reduction of violence had much to do with, "a reduction in some of the signature attacks that are associated with weapons provided by Iran."

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had no comment.

The general has overseen the military's build up in Iraq this year, as force levels jumped to 20 combat brigades, with more than 180,000 troops, during certain times when some of the units overlapped as they moved in and out of the country.

The Freedom Brothers note that private security firms, fighting alongside our troops, also deserve credit for the cessation of violence and the move toward a self-governing Iraq, a beacon of Democracy – and hope – in the Middle East.

So where’s John Murtha to smear our troops when the democrats need him?
