I have to tell you, the very idea that this is a surprise to some people, grates on my nerves. Yes, of course, we just might win. And if we weren’t constrained by the sort of PC rules of engagement, favored by Democrats, if we weren’t constantly battling a propaganda war here on the home front against liberal peace activists, if we weren’t constantly dealing with leaks from the CIA, undermining our war effort, if we didn’t have to endure the constant drumbeat of negativity and defeatism from the Democrats, we might just be further along by now in our course toward victory.
In spite of all that, the Troop Surge is now having the positive results hoped for, and even The New York Times can’t deny it. They can see the writing on the wall.
