Iraq update, Fred Day

I'll go "bigger brain" for this one in honor of the biggest brain in either room, Fred Thompson. This is going to point you to big picture stuff about the Iraq war.

First there's Victor Davis Hanson over at National Review online - Iraq’s Savage Ironies
  • In the build-up to the invasion, anti-Americanism in Europe reached a near frenzy. It was whipped up by French President Jacques Chirac and German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, and evoked warnings of an eternal split in the Atlantic Alliance. If Iraq had proved a catalyst for this expression of near hatred — fueled by long-standing angers and envies — it soon, however, proved to be a catharsis as well.

From Paul Greenburg over at - How Goes the War?
  • The news on the military front in Iraq continues to improve thanks to a new commander's new strategy, aka The Surge, and to the continued courage and competence of the troops entrusted with executing it. At last they seem to have a commander worthy of them. Every wartime president struggles to find his Grant. George W. Bush's may be named Petraeus.

From Ralph Peters over at The New York Post - IRAQ: WHAT WENT RIGHT
  • November 21, 2007 -- THE situation in Iraq has im proved so rapidly that Democrats now shun the topic as thoroughly as they shun our troops when the cameras aren't around.
