How They Did It
By Kimberly Kagan
The Weekly Standard | Wednesday, November 14, 2007
The surge of operations that American and Iraqi forces began on June
15 has dramatically improved security in Baghdad and throughout Iraq.
Proving for all to see that the US occupation of Iraq
will be permanent since Iraqis refuse to provide their
own security as longs as Americans will do it for them.
Remember "we will stand down as they stand up"?
