The Left has been whining about 'quagmire' since Afghanistan. It is 
foolish. The Arab street will follow success, and we are clearly not in 
a quagmire. Fallujah is a remarkable success, and more such successes 
will follow as the Iraqi National Guard - especially the officer corps - 
gains experience and dedication.

Iraq is to the war in terror as Italy was to WW II. It was of 
questionable importance, and arguably could have been leap-frogged. In 
terms of long-term victory in WW IV (which we are now in, having won WW 
III, thanks to Reagan and Gorbachev) we must achieve some form of 
liberal democracy in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Just as the communists 
achieved a certain domino effect following our withdrawal from Viet Nam, 
so liberal democracy can create a domino effect in the benighted middle 
east. Their socialist governments are the worst on the planet, and the 
Arab street will gladly forgive us when they see prosperity and freedom 
developing. Iran will fall to the youth (who are now passively resisting 
the Mullahs) and follow.
