Al Qaeda has been defeated. There is no civil war. Iraq is in process of becoming the most stable, the most democratic, the most unified between Shia, Sunni, and Kurdish, nation in the Middle East, except for Israel. Will there be any acknowledgement of this? No, of course not. Not that the war is over. Far from it. This is just an initial skirmish, albeit a remarkably successful one. George W. Bush will be remembered as one of our greatest Presidents. I was right about Apple stock, and I’m right about this.
