It took one of those liberal, anti-war surrender monkeys who called in to the Michael Reagan radio show while I was driving home from work to accomplish the task.
I can't accurately portray the whiny voice, but here were the main points:
It takes a big man to walk away from a fight, and we've already lost in Iraq so we should bring our troops home. George W. Bush is killing more of our troops every day we leave them there.
So, to the first point. He obviously listened to his Mommy when he should have followed the NEXT conversation he inevitably had which was with his Dad and probably went something like this. "Son, don't tell your Mom I'm telling you this, but if you don't stand up for yourself, they're just going to continue beating you up. You will need to fight in order to stop it. Once you make your stand, they will move on to the other kids whose mothers are telling them ' it takes a big man to walk away from a fight'".
His second point is absurdly false. We all see that. No need to comment.
His third point is obviously wrong too, but he may have George W. Bush somehow confused with Muqtada al Sadr so I'll give him a break. One of them is killing American troops and needs to pay, but it ain't George W.
So, now I OFFICIALLY STATE that the surge and it's accompanying strategy is a success. More than we imagined even. Petraeus is pitching a perfect game. The road to victory is right there in front of us. We just need to decide to walk down it.
