Al Qaeda Discusses Losing Iraq

From Strategy Page, amazing (it really speaks for itself). Please read the whole thing over at their website. A truly great assessment of how well the U.S., coalition and our Iraqi partners are doing while destroying Al Qaeda:
Al Qaeda web sites are making a lot of noise about "why we lost in Iraq." Western intelligence agencies are fascinated by the statistics being posted in several of these Arab language sites. Not the kind of stuff you read about in the Western media. According to al Qaeda, their collapse in Iraq was steep and catastrophic. According to their stats, in late 2006, al Qaeda was responsible for 60 percent of the terrorist attacks, and nearly all the ones that involved killing a lot of civilians. The rest of the violence was carried out by Iraqi Sunni Arab groups, who were trying in vain to scare the Americans out of the country.
Today, al Qaeda has been shattered, with most of its leadership and foot soldiers dead, captured or moved from Iraq. As a result, al Qaeda attacks have declined more than 90 percent. Worse, most of their Iraqi Sunni Arab allies have turned on them, or simply quit. This "betrayal" is handled carefully on the terrorist web sites, for it is seen as both shameful, and perhaps recoverable.

The article goes on to detail specific actions that have crushed Al Qaeda in Iraq and around the world. The whole movement is deeply flawed and based on murder and fear rather than bringing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to people.

Please support us winning this war. Think of the millions of Iraqis who are now allies and friends and partners for the rest of time. Think about their families as they fight daily with us to defeat terrorism and show the world that Islam can be compatible with a free-market democracy. If everyone just gets on board for a year and we can show solidarity, the terrorists will give up instantly.

We are very close to winning a historical victory. Once the Iraqi economy is booming, the Iranian people will revolt because they too want to live free and benefit from the wealth of a modern economy. The dominoes will fall. I don't care if the Dems take responsibility for this, just win for the billions still trapped in poverty and oppression.
