Insurgency Broken

By Rowan Scarborough THE WASHINGTON TIMES

The top Marine officer in Iraq declared yesterday that victory in the battle of Fallujah has "broken the back" of the Iraqi insurgency, while another commander in the war on terror said Osama bin Laden is all but cut off from his terrorist operatives.

The twin statements declare success on the two main war fronts -- Iraq and Afghanistan -- where the U.S. military is fighting a deadly insurgency and trying to create lasting democracies.

Lt. Gen. John Sattler, who commands the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force in Iraq, told Pentagon reporters that 11 days after invading Fallujah, the one-time insurgent stronghold is secure, but not yet safe. His ground troops were carrying out a "search-and-clear phase," he said.

I think we can all agree the liberal media won't report this as a decisive victory in the war on terrorism.

Could that possibly be because the president put our troops in harms way when he didn't have a plan for stopping insurgents to come pouring into the borders to fight and kill our troops. Or maybe because MAJOR COMBATS OVER yeah right I laugh at your war. Now call me a terrorist loving communist you McCarthyist nut job and don't give me the proof that this war is stopping terror because that is your standard right wing canned response. Well your gonna have to do better than that to convince me that we are fighting terror in Iraq!!!

It's July 2005 and my brothers in the Army are still getting blown to pieces!

I'd think this is hilarious but it's definitely not!

I think we should bury 'em all in YOUR back yard.
