Iraq: Smells Like Victory

An interesting comparison of Democrat lack of foresight, lack of honesty versus the situation on the ground today.

Harry Reid:

Nancy Pelosi:

Iraqi's blame Iran for the turmoil.

And in the news today:

"The withdrawal of American troops is completed now from all cities after everything they sacrificed for the sake of security," said Sadiq al-Rikabi, a senior adviser to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. "We are now celebrating the restoration of sovereignty."

The Pentagon did not offer any comment to mark the passing of the deadline.

Fireworks, not bombings, colored the Baghdad skyline late Monday, and thousands attended a party in a park where singers performed patriotic songs. Loudspeakers at police stations and military checkpoints played recordings of similar tunes throughout the day, as Iraqi military vehicles decorated with flowers and national flags patrolled the capital.
To the point about dishonesty, the AP news story felt compelled to include this comment, but none from those Iraqi's thankful to America.

"All of us are happy — Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds on this day," Waleed al-Bahadili said as he celebrated at the park. "The Americans harmed and insulted us too much."
Isn't that just wonderful? I'm sure every Iraqi feels the way al-Bahadili feels and to a man, woman or child, no one is happy to be free of Saddam and grateful to America for giving them freedom and quelling the violence (for the most part) before leaving.
