    We Won ... The Iraq War Is Over.

    By every measure, The United States and coalition forces have conclusively defeated all enemies in Iraq, pacified the country, deposed the previous regime, successfully helped to establish a new functioning democratic government, and suppressed any lingering insurgencies. The war has come to an end. And we won.

    What more indication do you need? An announcement from the outgoing Bush administration? It's not gonna happen. An announcement from the incoming Obama administration? That's really not gonna happen. A declaration of victory by the media? Please. Don't make me laugh. A concession of surrender by what few remaining insurgents remain in hiding? Forget about it.

    The moment has come to acknowledge the obvious. To overtly declare a fact that has already been true for quite some time now. Let me repeat:

    WE WON THE WAR IN IRAQ
    I don't want to press "1" for English. This is America!

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    We'd like to thankyou for voting for Bush twice as it's given the people of Britain much hilarity over the years.

    None taken Oscar. Being a journalist I read many many newspapers including those from your country. I have always found something in them to laugh about!

    If you can find an Iraqi writing that life for the average citizen in Iraq is better now than it was under the previous regime you'd perhaps have a justifiable position.

    I can show you the opposite if you like - Iraqis saying that life was better then than now. There are still two million displaced Iraqis living as refugees abroad, for example. Women complain that they can no longer safely work, study or teach as they used to. Secularism in Iraq has disappeared.

    Iraqi GNP remains lower than before the war. Public utilities are backward compared to what was provided by the previous regime. More to the point, there's no Iraqi army yet capable of securing the country's borders and until there is there's no independent Iraq.

    The minimum distinguishing aspect of a country is control of its own foreign policy and taxation, Iraq lacks both. It's still a dependent territory, it's not a nation.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
