Gracious me, we are now told that we need to engage the Iranians and Syrians in helping us to bring peace in Iraq. I read e-mails and blogs from American soldiers in Iraq regularly. These are men and women of all ranks involved with the Iraqi people on a daily basis. As a whole, they truly like the regular people there and want to work to bring freedomandpeacetothecountryofIraq.Tremendous progress is being made. The leaders of the Democrat party and the liberal media have contributed more than anything else to encouraging the insurgents who are controlled by Iran and Syria. American soldiers have died and bled because of them.
Now the pompous commission of people who know nothing about the on-the-ground work at the company level are giving policy advice. I will bet you they never talked to any of our dedicated military troops below the rank of at least one star. Most of them have never been to Iraq.
