Before the Surge even officially begins!
First, from Gallup:
In the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, taken Friday through Sunday, the proportion of those who said the additional troops are “making the situation better” rose to 31% from 22% a month ago. Those who said it was “not making much difference” dropped to 41% from 51%.
Optimism, maybe? If that number continues to rise, the Harry “We’ve Lost!” Reid’s are going to have a hard time in November. They’ll be replaced with chucklehead republicans, but at least they’ll pretend to be fighting terrorism.
And now, from the AP:
The new U.S. military strategy in Iraq, unveiled six months ago to little acclaim, is working.
In two weeks of observing the U.S. military on the ground and interviewing commanders, strategists and intelligence officers, it’s apparent that the war has entered a new phase in its fifth year.
The best bit is that the surge hasn’t even started yet and we’re seeing concrete results. Now are you ready to throw the Iraqis to the dogs by electing Ron Paul or any Democrat?
