Success in Iraq!

Iraq has been pacified, and all is well there. How do I know?

First, Republican congressman Tim Walberg from Michigan told us that "parts of Iraq are no more dangerous than Detroit, Chicago or Harvey, Illinois." Now, I lived in Detroit for over 6 years, and never had any sorts of problems. I had my my car broken into, and hubcaps and purse stolen in the suburbs, but no crime problems in Detroit.

So I know that Iraq must be safe.

Second, two Iraqi dentist bloggers say that things are much better. I don't read their blog, but they were quoted in the Wall Street Journal and by President Bush recently. And they're on the ground in Iraq, so they must know. In fact, they're such good bloggers that they got to meet with Bush in the White House a few years ago. The blogger who wrote this:
Let me clear it up for any moron with lingering doubts: It’s worse. It’s over. You lost. You lost the day your tanks rolled into Baghdad to the cheers of your imported, American-trained monkeys. You lost every single family whose home your soldiers violated. You lost every sane, red-blooded Iraqi when the Abu Ghraib pictures came out and verified your atrocities behind prison walls as well as the ones we see in our streets. You lost when you brought murderers, looters, gangsters and militia heads to power and hailed them as Iraq’s first democratic government. You lost when a gruesome execution was dubbed your biggest accomplishment. You lost the respect and reputation you once had. You lost more than 3000 troops. That is what you lost America. I hope the oil, at least, made it worthwhile.
was obviously just suffering from sour grapes, upset that SHE didn't get invited to the White House. Why else would she spread such lies about the glorious American victory in Iraq?

And then today, St. John McCain, Mr. Straight Talk himself, took a stroll in Iraq to show how safe it is. He strolled briefly through an open-air market in Baghdad to show how safe it is. He wore a bulletproof vest, and was accompanied by 100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships overhead.

In a press conference after his Baghdad tour, McCain told a reporter that his visit to the market today was proof that you could indeed “walk freely” in some areas of Baghdad. Video here.

Of course, malcontents who work and live in Iraq disagree:

But what do they know?
