Iraq War Victory?

In 1948 German werwolfs launched a major bombing campaign against Allied and Soviet forces. German citizens demanded the terror campaign to stop and the werwolfs ended their resistance to the new Germany.

The same may be happening in Iraq. al-Zarqawi's al Qaeda in Iraq attack on the Samarra Mosque may have been their high-tide. First there was native Iraqi insurgent versus al Qaeda battles, then al-Zarqawi was demoted, now Lt. Gen. John R. Vines reports that al Qaeda in Iraq has realized Iraq is not the best place for their Caliphate and pulling out.

This is possible when one thinks about it. Attacks on Coalition forces are down while the violence seems to be between al Sadr forces and rival Sunni militias. These groups' qualms are against each other and not the government. The militias will weaken each other as the government becomes stronger and gains the ability to crush these rogue groups. Let us hope and pray that this is the case.
