Victory in Iraq Declared last Year

November 22, 2008. The War in Iraq is over. By every measure, US and Coalition Forces have conclusively defeated all the enemies in Iraq. Have pacified the countryside, deposed the previous regime. Helped to create a new functioning democratic government, and suppressed any lingering insurgencies.

This is in a nutshell, a victory statement that I found on the blog ( dated November 22, 2008. Other links were quickly followed to get a overall snapshot of what is going on.

From the blog entitled Headline on Mainstream-Fox ( ) , the established benchmarks that Congress set up to determine victory in the War in Iraq has been meet. But you would not have know it from the lack of coverage in the mainstream news media. Only in the blogosphere does it appear that such information is slowly spreading out. Its February, 2009, and only now am I discovering this tidbit of news.

While the government has not made such an announcement – marking an official date. Fellow bloggers and veterans have chosen the date of victory for themselves – November 22, 2008. As such, this link ( ) is a quote “Virtual ticker-tape parade for our brave troops, to celebrate their success, to remember the fallen, and to declare in the words of President John F. Kennedy: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

Especially read the posting on Infidels Are ( ). However, I recommend reading the posting on this article ( ).
