It's Victory in Iraq Day!
Today, over 27 million Iraqis -- who heretofore have never known anything but oppression -- live in a free democratic republic. And the United States is a safer place for it.
All this made possible by the courage and sacrifice of our soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen -- America's "secret weapon":
I have to tell you that nothing, and I mean nothing, has made me prouder the past, almost-4 years than the young people who are serving our country in uniform. By any measure, they're just the best. You know, someone back in World War II asked General George Marshall what was the secret of America's success, what was our secret weapon in that war. And General Marshall said, "The best damn kids in the world." -- Ronald Reagan, September 19, 1984

Mission Accomplished: Victory In Iraq
The United States has won the war in Iraq.
And since the treasonous, America-hating press won't say it, patriotic bloggers will. Zombie has declared November 22, 2008 as Victory in Iraq Day. Zombie opines:
We won. The Iraq War is over. I declare November 22, 2008 to be "Victory in Iraq Day." (Hereafter known as "VI Day.")
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
And since there will never be a ticker-tape parade down Fifth Avenue in New York for our troops, it's up to us, the people, to arrange a virtual ticker-tape parade. An online victory celebration.
Saturday, November 22, 2008 is the day of that celebration: Victory in Iraq Day.
So this Saturday, wish your family and friends a happy VI Day. Better yet, go to AnySoldier.com and send a note to a deployed member of the U.S. military acknowledging their historic victory in the ongoing fight for freedom.

The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their country. -- George Washington
Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier. -- Sen. Zell Miller
