Don Surber links to a fascinating Washington Post op-ed that confirms the startling numbers: the surge is working... stunningly well.
|The Washington Post today assailed MSM, liberals and critics of the war. But I repeat myself. It is a fine editorial by a newspaper that too many conservatives dismiss as “lefty.” The Post editorial fact checks Hillary’s claim that “civilian deaths have risen.”|
The Post found otherwise: “A month later, there isn’t much room for such debate, at least about the latest figures. In September, Iraqi civilian deaths were down 52 percent from August and 77 percent from September 2006 …
Hillary lied. For political gain, she flat-out lied. She voted for this war 5 years ago to give her credibility in this presidential campaign. In September, she dumped on the efforts of Gen. Petraeus, whom she dared to portray as a liar.
William Safire pegged her well in January 1996 when he called her a “congenital liar.” He took heat for that. He spoke the truth to power before the phrase was co-opted by the power mad on the left...
As might be expected, the BDS sufferers -- not used to seeing positive news of any sort in an op-ed -- exploded in a delirious, Tourettes-like rage. Simply put, the comments are hilarious. The following, offered by 'Red Head Claudine', is typical.
|So there is one sure way to end all US troop deaths in Iraq and its real simple,|
just bring every one of our troops back home to the US and let the Iraqis kill every member of Nazi Dictator Draft Dodger
Darth Vader Cheney's Blackwater Republican
Guard Mercendary Army and Commander Killer
Condi's Waffen SS Blackwater Death Squads,
and safe us all that legal expense of trying and executing all of Erik Black Prince of Deaths Paid Killers and Hang
President Dry Drunk George W Bush,Darth Vader Cheney,Condoleezza Rice,Nancy Pelosi
Steny Hoyer,Harry Reid,Dickey Durbin,GOP Bush Zombie Mitch McConnell,Scumbag Trent Lott,Congressman Bonehead and Bluntbrains,
and the Black Prince of Death Blackwater CEO Erick Prince and that will help restore the rule of law and our own US Constitution and our world image as well.
Wow! If anyone can translate that deranged mess, please let us know in the comments. If any medical professionals know the author -- "Red Head Claudine" -- I'd recommend that you up her prescriptions.
And the scary thing is that Claudine is more lucid than most the Democrats I know.
