Islamic Party Of Iraq Declares al-Qaeda Defeated, Still Awaiting Democrat Rebuttal

Published by at 2:43 pm under All General Discussions,Iraq

I wonder which Democrat from Congress is going to challenge the conclusions of the head of Islamic Party of Iraq regarding our SUCCESS in Iraq in defeating al-Qaeda:

“Al Qaeda in Iraq is defeated,” according to Sheik Omar Jabouri, spokesman for the Iraqi Islamic Party and a member of the widespread and influential Jabouri Tribe. Speaking through an interpreter at a 31 October meeting at the Iraqi Islamic Party headquarters in downtown Baghdad, Sheik Omar said that al Qaeda had been “defeated mentally, and therefore is defeated physically,” referring to how clear it has become that the terrorist group’s tactics have backfired. Operatives who could once disappear back into the crowd after committing an increasingly atrocious attack no longer find safe haven among the Iraqis who live in the southern part of Baghdad. They are being hunted down and killed. Or, if they are lucky, captured by Americans.

Wow. The best thing for an al-Qaeda terrorist is to be captured by Americans, else the Iraqis who were brutalized by Bin Laden’s thugs would face serious and terminal consequences. Can any Democrat now stand up from DC (or where ever they are from) and claim they know more about al-Qaeda’s fortunes in Iraq than these people? Will liberals now ask Americans to simply ignore the views of the Iraqis and continue the farse of claiming the Surge a failure, as so many did before the Surge even began in earnest?

Will any Democrat now claim we should have cut and run last spring, just as the tide turned against al-Qaeda and Iraqis rose up to declare not only their freedom from Islamo Fascism, but declare their choice in making their future as allies of America and supporting their democratically elected government? al-Qaeda is not fighting the great Satan, they are massacring Muslims and all of Iraq knows this:

During the meeting, another member of the Iraqi Islamic Party said that al Qaeda has changed its strategy now that fomenting civil war between Sunni and Shia has backfired. Al Qaeda has shifted targets, now trying to generate friction between tribes. This time, however, the tribes are onto the game early, and they are not playing.

Again, look at the trend lines, look at WHERE Iraq is heading, not where it has been:

But the recent numbers do raise American and even Iraqi hopes. In October, 36 American service people were killed, the lowest toll since March 2006, down from 65 in September and 126 in May. Iraqi civilian deaths are down too. A tally compiled by Iraqi Body Count, a fastidious anti-war lobby group, from press and morgue reports will probably reach around 1,200 deaths: still a terrible toll, but fewer than the 2,500 victims in August and 3,000 in July.

These trends are not over folks. As I predicted weeks ago, we will continue to see drop offs in casualties for another two months before levels get to a point where the casualties due to non-combat incidents will equal or exceed those due to fighting. And then what will the Democrats say? Will they opine for the good old days of late 2006, early 2007 when the streets of Iraq ran red with the blood of Iraqis?

When will someone demand Democrats to state clearly which path is the one they prefer now? Was it the disasterous path they pushed multiple times in politically opportunistic votes in Congress to appease their rabid and blind base? Or will they finally admit President George W Bush had the right idea when he decided to push for success and save Iraq from years of bloodshed and Islamo Fascist takeover? Be honest liberals – this IS the best outcome of the two options offered. We did not run away and leave Iraq to al-Qaeda, we persevered and, with the help of the Muslim victims of al-Qaeda’s atrocities, defeated al-Qaeda and turned THEM into the enemy of Muslims. We did right, we did GOOD!

    Harry Reid might have to rethink that whole thing about the war being good for Democrats. The ghoul.

    November, 2008.

    The Dems can’t state which path they prefer now because they read
    The New York Times, they haven’t heard the news.

    And it just keeps getting worse, for al Qaida:

    Already beleaguered in Iraq, where tribal leaders have turned against it, al Qaeda faces a crumbling of its tribal alliances in the Afghanistan/Pakistan borderland regions. New reporting reaffirms my belief that substantial portions of the Taliban, a tribal entity which is under the influence of the Maulana Fazlur Rahman, have turned against al Qaeda. To be sure, not every Taliban leader is going to turn, but a significant portion of them will.

    Oh, and this is pretty important too.

    There are many classified operations on going. A major one covered in the press is the operation in Afghanistan, Which has led to a decapitation of all mid-level Taliban cadre.
    Even the Taliban see the writting on the wall, and they are looking for a way out.

    Biny has admitted al Qaeda has failed in Iraq and he goes begging for any support, which Islam continues to deny him.
    KIA are way down, Civilian deaths are way down, unEmployment and inflation in Iraq are way down, key indicators.

    Spain seems to be into some heavy secret operations and we don’t have a good handle on that yet.

    al Qaeda has been wringing suicide bombers out of the Ummah for six years now and abusing them and their souls.

    al Qaeda is low on money and man power, and USA is getting closer to Biny and his top level commanders.

    No one need demand, the Defeatocrat’s current strategy and tactic belies the path, ‘Defeat at all Costs – Destruction of the US optional but at no extra cost.’

    They are currently running-out the clock in an action which will send the supplemental funding bill to President under impassable terms. Bush will be forced to veto the bill and send it back to the floor but Congress will, likely as not, have already adjourned making it legally impossible to continue any funding when the money runs-out. If this is indeed what happens, the Bill not be taken-up until Congress comes back into session, 2008.

    It’s the Dem’s typical ‘Hit and Run’ ploy – do irreparable damage and Move-On:

    Democrats are at it again

    First, H.R. 3222, the Defense Department appropriations bill for fiscal 2008, has not been enacted, meaning the president has no appropriations bill to borrow from. Second, antiwar Democrats like Rep. David Obey, who is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, and Rep. John Murtha, who chairs the Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, have said they will not consider supplemental funding for the war until next year.

    If Congress fails to pass a supplemental appropriations bill funding the war in the next 20 days, it would appear to be legally impossible to continue military operations in Iraq for any extended amount of time — including the successful troop surge.

    After Pres. Bush’s speech yesterday at the Heritage Foundation, an angered Pelosi still claimed Iraq to be a ‘miserable failure’!
    These people are stuck, and dislodging this kind of ignorance is difficult.
