According to this CNN article, the Iraq war is moving in a new, positive direction. The author of the article states that the the number of deaths of U.S. soldiers has dropped from 150 a month to 50 a month. Also, the author says that the Al-Qaeda insurgency is losing its strength. These positive signs all point to one conclusion, the author says, that the Iraq war might gain support and thus the presumed Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, has a chance at winning the presidency even though he supports the Iraq war.
This article is great news; finally, the American public might get behind this war and vote for a presidential candidate who will lead us to victory. This war is winnable and if we as Americans can show renewed support and vigor for this war, then we could possibly end up drastically changing the political landscape of the Middle East for the better.
As a side note, has anyone else found it irritating and hypocritical that the same liberals who are so vocal about wanting to stop genocide in Darfur seem to care very little that Saddam Hussein committed genocide in Iraq against the Kurds in 1988? What about the very real possibility that if we pulled out of Iraq right now and allowed an extremist dictatorship to again take charge that there would be even more violence against minority groups? Are the liberals saying that Iraqi lives are less valuable than the lives of those in live in Darfur?
