The stories of al-Qaeda’s problems are starting to avalanche as Iraq turns the corner, causing a domino effect across the Muslim world in terms of al-Qaeda’s falling credibility and respect. The wave of good news is so strong I can only synopsize and link to the stories these days. So here we go: Coalition forces […]

Bellweather States Ohio & Florida Points To Shifting Views On Iraq

Ohio is a notoriously bellweather (or maybe in this 50-50 nation that should be weathervane) state. It totters left and right depending on the prevailing mood of the country. Like FL it is considered a purple state at best. So it is always useful to know what the people of Ohio (my mother’s home state) […]

Does al-Qaeda Dare To Destroy The New Found Peace Of Iraqis Muslims?

While there is reasonable caution that things in Iraq could still reverse, I think those reasons are swiftly vanishing.

Oh The Humanity! The Surrendercrats & SurrenderMedia Are Doomed.

The led zeppelin of defeatism on Iraq is crashing and burning like the Hindenburg did when it brought an end to airships.

WaPo Notes The Resurrection Of Bush’s Presidency

The Iraqi Success Story Might Be Brought To Pakistan

I really dislike posting on news reports that begin with ‘a classified program’, because I cannot tell if the story is the news media willing to sell out this country for the big bucks of scoop or a deliberate leak by the government. Needless to say I would be more cautious in reporting on classified […]
