A personal view about Iraq

And it's awesome. From NRO:

All Hail the 3/3 [Michael Ledeen]

Our son's Marine battalion, the 3/3, has returned to its base at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, from the hinterlands of Fallujah after a 7-month deployment. He and his Marines are full of praise for the battalion that went before them, which did most of the heavy lifting in the destruction of al Qaeda in that corner of Anbar Province. Both are entitled to high praise, and we can all be grateful that the 3/3 returns to America without losing a single Marine during their deployment.
There is plenty of fighting ahead in Iraq, but the tide of battle is now running strongly in our favor. Can we all say ooooorah!?
