Bad News For Kerry And Dean: We Are Winning

On the heels of the defeatist statements made by "Howling Mad" Howard Dean and John "Global Test" Kerry, the Iraqis proved them wrong today. The story below comes from FOX News.


BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraqi citizens turned over a high-ranking Al Qaeda member known as "the Butcher" to U.S. forces in Ramadi Friday a military statement said.

Amir Khalaf Fanus was No. 3 on the 28th Infantry Division's High Value Individual list for Ramadi, wanted for murder and kidnapping in connection with his affiliation with Al Qaeda in Iraq.

"He is the highest ranking Al Qaeda in Iraq member to be turned into Iraqi and U.S. officials by local citizens," Capt. Jeffrey S. Pool said in a statement released from Camp Blue Diamond in Ramadi. "His capture is another indication that the local citizens tire of the insurgents' presence within their community."

According to Pool, Iraqi and U.S. Forces "have witnessed increasing signs of citizens fighting the terrorists within Ramadi as the Dec. 15 National Elections draw nearer."

He said that another 1,200 Iraqi Security Force soldiers were recently stationed in Ramadi, while 1,100 Iraqi special police commandos and a mechanized Iraqi army company had moved into the city.

So, we are losing the fight, huh? Our troops are terrorizing the citizens of Iraq? I think not. Were either of these two arguments true then the citizens of Iraq would not have turned this guy over. "The Butcher," AKA Amir Khalaf Fanus, was one of the worst al-Qaeda operatives operating in Iraq, and the people of Ramadai had had enough of this animal. They turned him over to US forces. The only thing that would have been more poignant would have been if they had gift-wrapped this poor fool.

We are winning this war. It is a slow process, but we are accomplishing what we set out to do. And as we move forward, the Iraqis are moving with us. There is no dispute on this subject save the one on the Left that would prefer we "cut-and-run" or "redeploy" to other theaters. "Howling Mad" Howard Dean would prefer we pull out to Kuwait or Okinawa and simply wait for attacks on coalition forces.

We do not work that way. We work with our allies, hand in hand, and we will not abandon them. If we do, how long does the Left think the coalition will hold out there? Better yet, maybe Dean would prefer the UN send in peacekeepers there. Yes, that is the ticket. Send in peacekeepers, tell them to siton their triggers, and create a bigger mess that the United States will eventually have to go in and clean up.

This is why we chose this field of battle at this time. Yes, the terrorists have decided that this is the place that they are going make their stand. So be it. We are more than willing to help them on their way to meet Allah. Rep. Murtha may think that our military is "broken" and "living hand to mouth," but it is simply more rhetoric from the "Defeatocrats" that do not have the stomach for this sort of fight. Personally, I would be happy if they would just sit down and shut up. Let our troops fight this war. Let the administration prosecute this war, and maybe in a few years the Left will take credit for the victory the same way Pres. Clinton took credit for a robust economy that Pres. Reagan created through solid conservative economic principles.

The Left needs to get this through their puny little heads. America sees what these people are about. It is not abouty victory. It is about retreat. It is about appeasement. And above all, they do not have the fortitude the Founding Fathers had when it came to opposing tyranny.

As I've said many times, appeasement is never the way to go. It always comes back to haunt. For example, we appeased he Russians when they blocked Berlin. Yes, we showed the world how we could supply Berlin. But we paid for it with Korea, Vietnam and the communist continue to march with political correctness and sensitivity. Rawriter
