Petraeus: Iraq “Spiraling Upwards”

David Petraeus indicated today that a pullout of MNF (Multi-National Forces) around the Baghdad area is probably possible by next summer due to conditions on the ground.  He also said that the area is “‘spiraling upwards’ towards normal conditions” and “it gives Iraq new hope.”  What great news from a straight-shooter and American hero who’s shown he would not deceive us for political reasons!

Before the Palin pick, General Petraeus and the increasing dividends of the successful “Surge” strategy were McCain’s best-friend and an issue I hope they return to in earnest once the Convention fever wears out sometime late next week. 

Both O’Biden and Obama were dead wrong on this issue.  And will someone in the McCain campaign please bring up O’Biden’s advocacy of the worst-thought-out foreign policy concept in a generation: splitting Iraq into a weak confederacy of three weak parts?  It wouldn’t take five minutes for civil war, regional conflict with the Kurds, Iran, and al Qaeda to plunge the region into an apocalyptic scorched-earth dead zone.  It would have truly been war without end.  Luckily, Biden wasn’t in a position to see his plan work.  Let’s keep it that way.

I wish more of the media would keep talking about how wrong Obama and Biden were in not wanting the surge. The surge is the only reason that we are able to pull out the soliders now.
