Winning in Iraq

The President has laid out a good plan to win in Iraq. Some of the plan against the insurgency builds on the successful tactics we used to defeat the insurgency in South Vietnam. Clear. Hold. Build. It works. This time, if we show the political will, the good guys will win all around.

The terrorists think Iraq is the central front in their war against our civilization. We must treat it as the central from in civilization's war against terrorism. And we must make sure that this time our side wins.

Heritage also did a good seminar on winning in Iraq. Read about it.

I encourage everyone to read what the President actually says and look at the plan he advocates. Otherwise opponents will once again be pursuing chimeras and complaining about things he didn't say.

Not to mix topics, but the U.S. economy grew at a faster pace during the third quarter than initially thought, despite the the Gulf Coast hurricanes. 4.3% - not bad. GDP growth has been great over the past two years, fluctuating between 3.3% to 4.3% in 9 of the last 10 quarters. What about that other quarter? Oh yeah that one was 7.2%.
