The Truth of Iraq?

A report from a military source reveals that our armed forces are starting to achieve real victory in Iraq. Joint forces that include Iraqi military and police are rounding up insurgents, fewer foreign fighters are entering that country, and more of those who are have begun taking drastic means (as suicide bombers). Many who are captured have expressed relief over not being used as pawns by higher ranking religious zealots.

While we should take this with a grain of salt, because it is, after all, a military release, there appear to be reasons for hope. We may hope for a quick border closing, more effective policing of Iraqi cities and towns, and a swift recovery effort. Could there really be a silver lining to this dark cloud? Please remember to pray for our President and his cabinet, our elected officials, our soldiers in harm's way, and the Iraqi people who are suffering horrendously.
