Demoqrat 'Leader' Reid: 'progress has failed'

 

President Reagan: "The only real failure in life is the failure to try."


L

ost. Failed. Not working. Get out. Quit.

Dhimm al'Qrats always demand we give up when something doesn't turn out to be an easy win. They'll never demand we try harder to overcome any difficulty that stands between us and total victory.

Had Harpy Reid been Dhimmirat Leader on January 27, 1967 — the day three American astronauts lost their lives during a Project Apollo launch test — he would've come out the next day to demand we forget trying to send anyone to the moon. It's too hard. It's costing lives. We'll never make it. The program's a total failure.

Had he been in the Continental Congress on December 23, 1776 — the day Tom Paine published these words:

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.


— Humbuggy Reid would've stood up and declared the Revolutionary War lost. It's too hard. It's costing lives. The Troops' enlistments are all going to expire. General Washington's plan is a total failure.

Retreat. Surrender. Defeat. Disgrace.

These words we associate with Doomoqratic Party politicians because their vocabulary contains none of encouragement, hope, or that uniquely American attitude — once common among members of Congress in time of war — of continuing on, no matter what the odds, and doing whatever it takes to achieve another victory for human freedom.

So it's not surprising that Harridan Reid's moribund brain cells are incapable of increasing his language skills so they include any mention of the following hopeful and encouraging assessments.

It might be possible to demonstrate in principle that the Anbar Awakening movement could spread outside of the province, but it is not necessary, because it has already done so. Although some media outlets continue to portray this spread as speculative or potential, it is, in fact, well documented. Australian counterinsurgency expert David Kilcullen recently described it in detail in a post on the Small Wars Journal website; Michael Gordon described it in even greater detail in The New York Times Magazine this weekend, and U.S. military and political officials have been briefing on it for many weeks. Local Sunni Arabs all throughout Central Iraq have come forward to volunteer for service in the Iraqi Security Forces in order to fight al Qaeda in Iraq and bring peace to their war-torn lands. This movement has gained great traction in Diyala Province — another area that was so heavily infested with AQI and Shia militias that many had given it up for lost — where it helped secure the gains of recent U.S.-ISF operations that cleared its capital, Baqubah. It is growing rapidly in the areas south of Baghdad (which Michael Gordon wrote about), including in the area formerly known as the "triangle of death" and serious al Qaeda safe havens in the Arab Jabour area. It has spread into Abu Ghraib, where more than 2,400 Sunni young men volunteered to join the ISF, and over 1,700 have been accepted by the Iraqi government. And it has even spread into Baghdad itself, where “concerned citizens groups” are helping U.S. forces track down and eliminate AQI fighters and leaders and to secure their neighborhoods. Movements are starting to grow even in Salah-ad-Din Province, site of Saddam’s hometown of Tikrit and Samarra, and also a major base for Sunni rejectionists and AQI fighters. The evidence of the spread of these movements is absolutely irrefutable. Anbar may be unique — and many of the local movements outside the province have ostentatiously refused to call themselves "awakenings" or to model themselves after the Anbar movement — but the Iraqis themselves are aggressively adopting the Anbar model to suit local circumstances in order to work with the Coalition and the Iraqi government against terrorists and militias to secure their homes.


Or these:

Six months ago, insurgents operated freely around Baghdad's belts. Now U.S. and Iraqi forces limit them to discrete areas, more distant from urban centers, where they cannot easily defend themselves, or support one another or their vehicle-bomb network.

Smaller groups who escaped from their safe havens during combat operations generally fled along the Tigris and Diyala River valleys. The remnants of al Qaeda in western Baghdad can no longer quickly reinforce their positions from outside or within the city.

Gens. David Petraeus and Raymond Odierno followed up Phantom Thunder with Phantom Strike. The new campaign, launched on Aug. 13, aims to prevent terrorists and militias from reconstituting their forces in Baghdad, its belts or elsewhere. U.S. and Iraqi forces are moving along the river valleys to destroy the remnants of enemy groups and eliminate any new safe havens they try to establish. Their operations are also preventing Shiite militias from taking over territory al Qaeda once controlled.



Or even these:

Given that the [draft] report [by Harried loseReid's GAO] doesn't attempt to acknowledge progress, it sounds as though it may not even account for the agreement on several key legislative issues that was announced by Iraqi leaders a few days ago.

One wonders, too, what business the GAO has writing a report on Iraq. Did members of that agency travel to Iraq? Did they discover any facts that have not already been widely reported? What expertise, if any, did they bring to their task? Until 2004, "GAO" stood for "General Accounting Office." That agency has been best known for auditing government programs. It's hard to see what light its report can shed on the situation in Iraq. In any event, the report has probably already achieved its real purpose: generating negative headlines about Iraq.



Anything that shows our Troops are winning in Iraq is just one more problematic negative to power-hungry Defeatedrat Party politicians.
