More Progress in Iraq

By Caomhin

Quietly, another milestone has been achieved in Iraq. The U.S. will begin to hand over suspected Iraqi combatants over to the Iraqi court system for trial; and the suspects’ innocence or guilt will be determined by the Iraqi system.  This is quite an achievement and another mile marker passed as Iraqi progresses into a more stable democracy.

We have already seen the Surge’s success in toning down violence and many deals being made among tribal and ethnic areas in Iraq as they move toward further reconciliation.  Support for insurgent groups has dropped dramatically and the Iraqis have seen a budget surplus from their government.  These are all very positive signs and points toward a much brighter future in Iraq.  For all the naysayers, in particular, people like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the decisions by the Bush Administration to put Gen. David Petraeus in charge of the operations, to implement the Surge, and have faith in the Iraqi people are proving to have been very wise.
