"Victory" Over Al-Qaeda in Iraq?So I am reading this post over at Danger Room about how the Pentagon is agonizing about how or rather if they should announce victory against Al-Qaeda in Iraq.
"The U.S. military believes it has dealt devastating and perhaps irreversible blows to al-Qaeda in Iraq in recent months," the Washington Post reports. And now, there's a struggle within the military over whether to declare "victory" -- or just good news. -- wired.com
You know, you just know, what they are agonizing about is if they should announce it at all. Instead of just saying "look, we are kicking their asses". They dont want to make it sound like they are making progress, and they damn sure don't want to make it sound like they no longer have a terrorism problem in Iraq. Because otherwise why are 2 or 3 Americans and god knows how many Iraq's are dying a day.
Save us from the cowardly perfumed princes at the Pentagon... Same as it ever was.
