Fire of Liberty
After seeing the report above from ABC World News by Terry McCarthy, I'd have to say that a lot of Democrats in Congress shouldn't be so quick to quip before the cameras and to the rest of the MSM that President Bush and the Pentagon "don't have a plan" when it comes to securing Iraq. Now I know that the video shows various security barriers made out of concrete and barbed wire along the streets but if such barriers along with a hefty presence of US/Iraqi soldiers in these neighborhoods is effective in keeping down the violence then then I think the folks living there will continue to welcome this with open arms. As with anything in a counter-insurgency fight in such a difficult place like Iraq, we're going to have to wait a while to see how successive the new plan is working. Here's hoping that the success they've achieved so far will continue.
