al-Qaeda decreed Iraq was the primary battlefield for the war against The Great Satan – America. When we took out Saddam Hussein, one time ally with Ayman Zawahiri’s group that became the armed forces of al-Qaeda, Bin Laden and Zawahiri made it clear America would lose to radical Islam in the Arab heartland. In fact, al-Qaeda decreed Iraq would host the capitol of the modern Muslim caliphate, and that capitol city was initially Ramadi, located in Anbar Province.
Until the Anbar Awakening occurred and the angry Iraqi Sunni tribes hunted down al-Qaeda and purged them from their areas. Then al-Qaeda set up the second capitol city of the Muslim caliphate, in the city of Baquba in Diyala Province. While the SurrenderMedia nd Surrendercrats moaned and groaned about unavoidable defeat of The Surge in Iraq, I noted that as goes Diyala so goes Iraq. And here we are only a little over a year since I made those predictions and al-Qaeda’s modern caliphate is now firmly under the control of a democratically elected Iraq, which is also an ally with America in its war against al-Qaeda.
A transfer of responsibility from Multi-National Division â€“ North Soldiers to Iraqi Security Forces was finalized in the southern Balad Ruz area of the Diyala province of Iraq Aug. 2.
The volatile area of Diyala, where two operations are currently being conducted, has seen success with security for the Iraqi Army, Iraqi Police and local residents.
Americans may not appreciate how humiliating this is for al-Qaeda and the Islamo fascists movement. The prophesied center of the new militant Islam has fallen into moderate Muslim hands. The Great Satan was not vanquished, and all the Muslims who died at the hands of al-Qaeda’s thugs were victims of a greater evil. Now, in the supposed cities of the modern caliphate in Bin Laden’s wildest dreams, he and his organization are the enemy of Islam.
Mission Accomplished. We thank all those who fought and sacrificed, and their families, for seeing this thing through to victory. This nation owes you all a historic debt. As does the world.
