Bad News For Democrats Keeps Rolling In

More and more and more evidence the (misnamed) surge is working.

Iraq violent death rates 'plunge'

The number of Iraqi civilians killed per month in bombings and shootings has fallen to the lowest level this year, the Iraqi government says.

In September, 884 civilians were killed by violence, less than half the figure for August, the government said.

The BBC's Jon Brain in Baghdad says the figures suggest the so-called surge involving 30,000 extra US troops is having some success.

September also saw the lowest number of US troops killed for more than a year.

When General Petraeus was giving his testimony, we heard all sorts of wacky theories from the left trying to disprove that American Troops where winning in Iraq. Kevin Drum tried to tell his readers the reduction is violence didn't exist -- then when the reality was just too overwhelming, in a further act of denial, he tried to explain it away as a seasonal variation.

Civilian deaths have PLUNGED in the last 30 days. They have been cut in half IN THE FACE of the so called Ramadan offensive. And Troop deaths are at a 14 month low.

It is time for the "surrender at any cost" Democrats to admit they where wrong to disparage Petraeus and his report. They won't do that of course. Petraeus has earned time to prove his tactics can produce long term results. So far the results have been spectacular.

And it's time for more than a few Democrats to apologize.

And this marks the official start of the Paul Hooson Suicide Watch.

It's a crying shame one party is so invested in defeat they cannot join us in celebrating American successes.

I disagree with Paul Hooson... (Below threshold)

I disagree with Paul Hooson on many things, and I think he's absolutely wrong on many others, but he's not a bad guy and he's far less directly insulting and abrasive as FF, nogo, Barney, CB and others. And I say that without having a "thing" for him.

If anyone should ever be outright banned from all threads, in my opinion, it would have been FreedomFried and CivilBehavior a long time ago.

OK, with all that's going on in this thread and the comments, will you all just hold on while I go make some popcorn and grab my favorite beverage?

BTW Paul, are you going to come out with your answer to the question you posed about the biggest influence on the 2008 elections? Just happened to remember that.
