Get it Straight! The "War" is LONG Over!

This astounds me. This is something that most Americans have yet to grasp. The Authorization to use force was given to remove the Bathhist Regime. Period. That was completed in 2003, if you recall, Bush announced it on the deck of that aircraft carrier.

It does NOT extend to the "war on terror" PR war, which like the "war on drugs" is distinctly different from a real war.

We are in the Reconstruction phase of the campaign, like where we were with Germany and Japan in the 50s.

People need to stop acting as if we are at war with Iraq, because we are not. We are only there to try and help them construct a new government and survive the process.

That’s why we have so many National Guardsmen there, because civil reconstruction is something they specialize in.
The regular Army specializes in civil Deconstruction.

The progress against the insurgency over in Iraq by the Iraqi POLICE force has only confirmed what I have always said, that terrorism is a POLICE issue. It can be defeated only through investigation and infiltration, which are POLICE specialties.
