Contrary To Surrendercrats, al Qaeda Is Losing Ground In Iraq

Published by at 1:26 pm under All General Discussions,Diyala,Iraq

I have said many times the Surrendercrats cannot affort al Qaeda to lose in Iraq because if they did, the Democrat party would probably be mortally damaged in terms of its reputation to lead this country. That is what happens when you bet on America to lose. But al Qaeda has made simiarly self-destructive decisions as well. As recent reporting is showing their rampant violence in Iraq has turned the Iraqis against them and on the side of America:

In Khalis yesterday, a suicide bomber attacked a funeral, killing about 16 local citizens and wounding at least 24 others.

“Al Qaeda will stop at nothing to inflict pain and spread hatred,” said Col. David W. Sutherland, senior U.S. Army officer in Diyala province. “This includes resorting to attacking a sacred event in the Islamic culture. This is recognized by the people in this province, and they will not be swayed in their efforts to achieve security.

“More and more, the people are turning to the Iraqi security forces with information as indicated by a 163 percent increase in Tips Hotline calls over the past two months,” he said.

The Iraqi army and police responded to the attack to provide medical care, security and recovery assets. Local ambulances transferred the wounded citizens to the Baghdad and Khalis hospitals.

“The first responders’ reaction was quick, organized, and efficient, and the city leaders did not need any coalition force support,” Sutherland said. “This is an indicator of the increased effectiveness of the local security forces working together.”

Is this effecting the security situation? You bet. Just check out all the positive results in this one report. Here is a small sample:

Intelligence reports led coalition forces this morning to targets linked to senior al Qaeda leaders west of Taji. During an operation there, terrorists engaged ground forces with small-arms fire, military officials said.

Using appropriate self-defense measures, coalition forces engaged the armed men, killing five and detaining six suspects. Coalition forces found weapons and grenades, which they destroyed on site.

In a separate raid west of Taji this morning, coalition forces captured five suspected terrorists.

Elsewhere in Iraq today, coalition forces north of Samarra nabbed seven suspects with alleged ties to senior leaders in al Qaeda and detained two other suspects in Mosul.

The Democrats are now completely exposed to al Qaeda’s poor decision making. If al Qaeda had been smart they would have chilled and waited until the US left Iraq. But being the bloodthirsty, mindless folks they are they have been bleeding the Muslim street trying to get the Dems to panic (which of course they did). The Dems are so wedded to their doom & gloom predictions (since when were Pols fortune tellers?) that they are oblivious to the shifting ground under them. If Diyala and Baghdad follow the example of Anbar and things settle down significantly the Dems would be known as the ones who pushed as hard as they could to make America fail when it was on the verge of major progress. It will be fascinating to watch the collapse of the Surrendercrats….

    Al-Qaeda is not the only problem in Ira, in fact, there a small percentage of the problem. The Sunni/Shia civil war is the problem. What a bunch of choices: the Sunnis are the party of Saddam Hussein, and have the backing of the Saudis and other Sunni Islamic countries. The Shia represent the majority, and have the backing of Iran. Then there’s the Kurds . . .

    You are so uninformed. Most of the violence in Iraq right now is either a direct result of Iraq or it is because of sectarian violence they have helped create. If we leave and they sit up a base and an attack takes place on America or its interests and can be traced to Iraq, what will the Democrats say or do? My guess is they would not mind an attack that killed people IF they thought they could blame it on Bush or the war in general…but people will still expect them to deal with the problem and so far their only enemy seems to be thier fellow Americans who happen to be Republicans. They are good at attacking them. They have no idea what to do about AlQaida.

    I should have said most of the violence in Iraq is a direct result of AlQaida in Iraq.
