Blogging the State of the Union: Iraq (Finally!)

Iraq is the front line in the War on Terror. Pays tribute to elections. Lots of inkstained fingers held up by the Congress. I wonder how many of them would have had the guts to actually cast a ballot there? Pres. Bush notes the personal courage of those Iraqis who voted. BIG applause!

Great line: "Saddam was the occupier; America was the liberator". The Iraqi woman who said this is present, seated next to Laura Bush and holds up inkstained fingers. Great visual.

"A small group of extremists will not overturn the will of the Iraqi people" How can anyone argue with that. It shows how absolutely critical the election really was. A legitimacy was conferred that was not (nor could not be) there before.

"Freedom in Iraq will make America safer for generations to come". This gets even some Democrats to stand up.

No artificial deadline to pull out. We will come home when the job is done.
