al-Qaeda Has Lost Iraq – No Question

Published by at 1:12 pm under All General Discussions,Diyala,Iraq

I predicted back in March (and maybe before) that the Iraq Province of Diyala would tell the tale of Iraq, and therefore the world at large for years to come. At that time The Surge was just beginning as troop rotations were being planned to accommodate The Surge. But also by that time the sea change had begun that would spell al-Qaeda’s demise: Anbar Province had risen up against al-Qaeda and began fighting alongside Americans and Iraqi forces to purge the bloodthirsty Islamo Fascists from the Province.

I could tell this was happening because you could see a sharp increase in the number of Iraqis dying in bombings by al-Qaeda. Clearly al-Qaeda was vainly trying to regain or retain control over the people who lived in their supposed stronghold. The mass killings of Iraqi Muslims tore the facade from al-Qaeda’s propaganda, which finally exposed these killers to the general public for what they truly were. The deaths of Iraqis in Iraq has been and is now at the hands of Muslim extremists.

So Anbar rose up and killed and chased al-Qaeda from its region, with our help. Diyala Province then became the last large sanctuary for al-Qaeda in Iraq. The Surge was orchestrated to close the noose around al-Qaeda in Diyala. But it would only really work if, as in Anbar, the local population rose up to kill and chase al-Qaeda out of their Province. And if that happened we had the making of a domino effect that would not only sweep Iraq, but would sweep across the Middle East and the Muslim world. That is why I said, as goes Diyala so goes Iraq and the world.

Diyala is now the next domino to rise up and purge itself of Islamo Fascists, to take arms and swear on the Koran to defeat al-Qaeda:

TIKRIT, Iraq, Aug. 3, 2007 — Eighteen paramount tribal leaders representing 14 of the major tribes in Diyala province, Iraq, swore on the Quran and signed a peace agreement unifying the tribes in the battle against terrorism during a meeting at the Baqubah Government Center Aug. 2.

The meeting, led by Ra’ad Hameed Al-Mula Jowad Al-Tamimi, governor of Diyala; Staff Maj. Gen. Abdul Kareem, commander of Iraqi security forces (ISF) in Diyala province; and Col. David W. Sutherland, commander of coalition forces in Diyala, was attended by sheiks representing three Shiite tribes, 11 Sunni tribes and 60 of Diyala’s 100 sub-tribes.

al-Qaeda’s bloody terror has taught the people of Iraq the true choice they must make. They have lived under al-Qaeda, provided sanctuary to al-Qaeda, and been massacred by al-Qaeda in return. No slick PR or biased reporting in the West will deflect the realities experienced by these people. Iraq is now lost to al-Qaeda. It is the home of many such Koran-oaths to destroy the once popular Islamo Fascists movement. Here is what we find in the aftermath of such oaths:

After receiving information of known al-Qaida members in the Sherween area, a village near Muqdadiyah, Iraq, Iraqi citizens assisted Iraqi Police in the detention of three key al-Qaida leaders, July 29.

“This is a very significant event for Diyala because it is clear that not only are the security forces targeting al-Qaida, but the people are tired of the hatred and destruction al-Qaida and other terrorist groups have to offer,” said Col. David Sutherland, commander of 3-1 Cav. and commander of Coalition Forces in Diyala province.

Suspecting an attack on a near-by village, Diyala tribal members informed the Dali Abbas Iraqi police, and together, set up a tactical checkpoint along the known route.

And I do expect these dominoes to continue to fall across Iraq and beyond its borders. al-Qaeda is not only on the run, it is now enemy number one on the Muslim streets and within Muslim homes. Bin Laden’s vaulted movement is self destructing. It finds more tolerance in western news rooms than in Iraqi communities.

    You have to remember all those dems gals mentioned in that article have strange yardsticks of measurement.

    Also they are lazy.

    Diane Feinstein just had her personal trainer tell her to touch her toes

    And she took her bra off!

    Here is a post containing two reports put together by the House Republicans. Looks like they’re ganging up in a united fashion to support the war against radical Islamists.

    Right now I am watching the streaming video delayed from the Kos Kids convention.

    What a bunch of sick puppies.

    Half the stuff they are saying supports exactly what we say and the spin the rest like it over rides the real points.

    Painting the wall with one color when it isn’t that simple.

    These people really have issues that they cant justify.

    They can’t justify anything they are proposing.

    Wesley Clark totally tells why he shouldn’t have ever put his hat into the ring in the race.

    Tortured ideas that stretch the concept of reality.

    It is amazing how these people think and how they base their ideas.

    And that is supposed to be the new center.

    Just think about that.

  4. MerlinOS2 says:

    My general impression is they can even agree about what they wish to agree on.

    They have burnt themselves out in the Lamont campaign and now they are just spinning donuts in front of the high school they went to in the grass and beyond that they don’t have a clue.

    We don’t have to put a wedge into them from what I see and hear, they are a big tent of multiple issues and they MAY rip each other apart looking to put forward their own issue.

  5. MerlinOS2 says:


    Hey I thought it deserved at least a ROTFLMAO but you get extra points for the double !!.

  6. MerlinOS2 says:

    Right now in the stream I am watching they are listing about 35 people in the crowd there who they have on their hit list of who they are supporting in the next election (beyond the presidential ones).

    They are also telling of all the groups affiliated with them in their push to get what they want.

    It’s all the usual suspects with no surprises, the same old tired bunch of groups.

    I feel like I am delayed live blogging this thing.

    If this is the best they can put together at their second annual get together man they really have issues and with some of the comments by their own people they also realize it themselves.

    And this is the neobase.

    Hello they cant even organize a convention to look like it knows what it’s doing.

    Wesley Clarke is a highpoint featured speaker, please.

    Give me a break.

    In other news

    I just got an advance copy of the DVD of the Bourne Ultimatum.

    Yeah I know they aren’t supposed to be released yet, but eat your hearts out.

    If you liked the rest this one will continue the thrill.

  8. MerlinOS2 says:

    Harry Potter ain’t got $hit on Bourne.

    Check the numbers of books sold and you got the number of libs who have the “We believe in Magic” thing going for them.

    Sorry guys there IS a real world , check in some time if you can take a break.

  9. MerlinOS2 says:

    The Lovin Spoonfull had a nice song with Do You Believe in Magic, but does anyone think that is a way to run a life?

  10. MerlinOS2 says:

    Hey Lurker

    Extra point question.

    Did she do it because she knew when she bent over what would touch before her hands did or could she possibly do it from a standing position?

    Barbra Walters wants to know.

  11. MerlinOS2 says:

    I have it on good authority that Barbara Walter experimented in the shower and she ain’t to happy.

    Unfortunately for Sooth and a lot of the lefties….their whole “lie world” is fixing to come crashing down on a rat trap on their head. (with the cheese still in their mouth).

    But, dont’ let that stop you soothie 🙂

    You just keep on keepin on.

  13. Christoph says:

    That is why I said, as goes Diyala so goes Iraq and the world.

    God damn you’re crazy.

    I thought Bourne was kind of a an anti government, government agent. But you like the movies? I want to get the 300.

    And I resent the remark re Feinstein and her bra. It happens to us girls as we grow older. I know that if I tried to play volley ball braless I would probably beat myself to death.

    Merlin, I saw the post by our resident Leftist about O’Reilly. I tell ya, these leftists are stuck at 6 years old. Such juvenile things they do. But hey, as Rush has baited them, I will as well: Come on out into the light of day, Leftists. We want to get a real good look at ya!

    Can you imagine what the moderate, sane democrats (if there are any) are doing when they see these Lefties….

    I sincerely apologize for the offense to you, I guess I went too far over the top trying to make satire about the recent stories concerning the cleavage issues reported on about Hillary and Pelosi and it didn’t come out as intended.

    Again sorry.

  17. lurker9876 says:

    Mer, I saw through your satire and didn’t feel offended but glad you apologized.

    I was a kid way back when in a different time well before the 60’s love generation.

    I was born on a dairy farm and all my relatives farmed and pitched in to help each other.

    I was only 5 or 6 then but I remember my aunts and uncles ALL working topless tossing hay bales onto the wagon I was riding on behind that John Deere tractor and nobody was run over because they were looking at what was being shown.

    Sometimes girl friends of them were involved so it wasn’t just ignore it it’s family thing.

    I remember well one aunt who tossed one over each shoulder just to keep them out of the way while she was working.

    Then after a hard days work everyone went skinny dipping in the pond behind the barn.

    Too many times the world today either makes to much about anatomy issues or goes to the other extreme and takes it to lightly.

    I preferred what I experienced back then.

    I was blessed with marrying a woman I totally loved and adored who was also and extremely physically attractive woman.

    Her mother could have done stunt doubles for Jackie Kennedy and her father was a Mafia Don (but that’s another whole story).

    She was born in Germany and by the age of 10 she was a well known model over there and only got better looking after that.

    We could walk into a restaurant and as we were going to our table you could notice conversation dying down and a silence pervading the room.

    In fact in some cases the only sound was other women grating their teeth.

    Even with all that my wife learned quickly that sexy night cloths and teddies and such never were an issue with me.

    In fact during the day she wouldn’t wear anything sexual at all since she didn’t want to offer anything our son who has cerebral palsy anything that would put ideas into his head that could never be fulfilled.

    My wife realized our interactions were strictly because I loved her, not her physical beauty.

    That is why we had such a great marriage and fit in so well with each other.

    Monday will be hard for me , it will be the second anniversary of loosing her to a heart attack.

    Everyone who knew us as a couple were not shy in saying we obviously had all the good points of a relationship they everyone else wished they could achieve in theirs.

    Ours just flowed from almost a perfect match of what love and marriage is really all about.

    I really wish everyone could experience that.

    I have seen too many who haven’t.

    Merlin, we will be thinking of you on Monday.
