A Silent Victory for the US Military

Over 4,000 US military men and women died fighting for freedom for Iraqis. They did not die in vain.

Saddam Hussein was responsible for nearly 40,000 deaths per year over a 25 year span. Some say he killed nearly a million of his own people (not to mention how many Iranians and Kuwaitis died in his territorial wars during that time).

The deaths in Iraq are now equivalent to the same numbers of murders in NY and Chicago each month. An incredible change and a savings of a tremendous number of lives. Not to mention that a free democracy now exists in the Middle East.

War for oil? Not a single US company has won the bids for oil contracts since they started 2 years ago.

Please read this post at Gateway Pundit. The Marines of Anbar Province are coming home from Iraq victorious and I'm betting the SNM - Stonewall News Media has no intention of covering it.

The pictures of the kids alone are well worth the look.
