Yesterday, many conservative bloggers joined in to dare to declare November 22nd, Victory in Iraq Day. Based on the above photo, I’d say declaration of victory is premature…

You see…..burning effigies of “selected not elected” President Bush is soooo yesterday; and soooo lame and unimaginative….mmmkay? Yes, freedom and democracy are flourishing in Iraq; but until Iraq’s own moonbats can come up with colorful protests like this against the imperialistic, fascist dictatorial evil Bush regime:

…….and get away with it, unmolested by the government….

Then, now, we’re talking freedom and democracy, baby!

Looks like the protesters are Shiite hardline followers of Moqtada al-Sadr. So no real surprises. They aren’t happy with SOFA; but the defense minister warns of the dangers of a premature U.S. pullout and the prime minister says it’s the best roadmap toward restoring Iraqi sovereignty.

Sounds just like here. Thousands protest creating noise, while millions of “normal folk” go about their daily business, going to work, going about their daily activities.

Before you know it, they’ll be voting on their own Prop 8, with activists rampaging through the streets, not taking “yes” for an answer.

This Iraqi interpreter has even quit wearing his mask.

Actually, I think our time is nearing when it is time to withdraw most of our forces out of Iraq. Iraq should succeed or fail based upon its own merits of self-rule and self-determination. No more apron-strings. And if it fails, if things head south of success, it should not be an indictment of the original decision to remove Saddam. The decision to stay; the decision to surge. The decision to withdraw. And I stand by the justifications put forth for ending Saddam’s reign, to this day. In fact, even more so today than I did back when.
