"One of the Most Spectacular Victories of the War on Terror"

There are all kinds of juicy news we may have missed over the 4th. for the first and best news you have to run across the pond to read, but no matter, it's gold:

American and Iraqi forces are driving Al-Qaeda in Iraq out of its last redoubt in the north of the country in the culmination of one of the most spectacular victories of the war on terror.

Vets For Freedom has their first ad up to counter the lies of the far left group It's brief and excellent. It will be playing in battleground states. They don't promote any candidate, they just want the truth about the war out there:

"As an organization, we have four months here," said the group's chairman, Pete Hegseth, an Iraq veteran. "A window of opportunity of heightened awareness. We think it's crucial that the success our troops have made on the battlefield is relayed to the American public."

Why is this necessary? Maybe because as the surge succeeded, coverage of Iraq declined 92% in one year.

Our troops have taken a beating from the media and the far left in this country for many years. But they stood steady and did their job.

There is a reason we have not been attacked again. Our warriors are the reason. God bless them.

Update: I've got to add this. Greyhawk, over at Mudville wrote the following song while in Iraq when the surge began. Check out the video here.

The Free and The Brave

Over in America, home of the free
Land of unlimited opportunity
People in the streets protest whatever they can
While over in Iraq and Afghanistan

The brave, far from home, are standing talland toeing the line, so they can have it all
Some try to complicate it but it's simple to me
They're making noise, we're making history

Osama'd like to think that we can't get it done
And some would like to tell you it's time to cut and run
Me I like to finish something once I've begun
And I don't think I'm the only one

Here making history, hearing the noise
of things that divide and things that destroy
Things you'd never ever want to see on your street
Things you might call the price of defeat

So excuse me if I come home a little annoyed
If while I was making history, you were making noise

We're making history
They're making noise
We're facing the fire

They're playing with toys
Nobody ever said
That it would be easy
They're making noise
We're making history
