The Real Sporer: The recession that wasn't and the victory that was
Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer
Did anyone notice that we won the Iraq campaign this week? American
casualties fell to five. All evidence indicates that al Qaeda in
Mesopotamia has been annihilated, the Mahdi Army crushed, the Sunnis
integrating into the political process and actively participating in
the new Iraqi Army and the political process at least as functional as
our nine percent Congress. But those strategic reasons aren't the sign
of sure victory. It's not even something anecdotal like Ryan Crocker
walking down the streets of Basra. Nope, it's the Colonel. Yes, a
Colonel Sanders "Kentucky Fried Chicken" franchise in Fallujah.
Islamic extremism cannot flourish where confronted by the Colonel's
finger lickin' goodness. American culture has begun to take root.
