    "A Sunni faction has killed 18 al-Qaeda militants in an attack on a compound near the Iraqi city of Samarra, police have said.

    Another 16 al-Qaeda members were said to have been captured in the attack.
    The Sunni Islamic Army of Iraq - once part of the insurgency against US-led forces - said its fighters attacked the compound east of the city.
    The faction is one of several Sunni former insurgent groups that have now turned against al-Qaeda. On Friday, five Sunni Arab tribal leaders had been killed in a suicide attack in Diyala province, north-east of Baghdad."

    Proof that the surge is working. Great that the Iraqis are finally starting to take responsibility for their own destiny. Good for those who had the tenacity to stay the course instead of waving the white flag. And finally, bad news for the Democrats who are depending on bad news for their political viability.

    A cheap political shot. Which is also not true. Regardless of how things go in Iraq the Republicans are toast in the November 2008 election.

    Such a comment shows that Republicans politicize the sacrifices that our military personnel make. Shame on anyone - left or right - do does such a despicable thing.

    Its the truth. The Democrats are depending on failure in Iraq in order to win the white house. We are killing off all the terrorists and now the Iraqis are becoming emboldened now that we have weakened the resolve of Al Quaida. They cant run on the economy.

    No, that is not the truth. If things go better in Iraq then it falls off the political radar screen and foreign policy/national security become less important during the election campaign. Domestic issues then come to the forefront, especially if the economy slows down or goes into a recession during 2008, and domestic issues are where the Democrats have a clear advantage over the Republicans with the voters.

    Therefore, the better things go in Iraq the easier it will be for Democrats to focus on domestic issues where they have a clear advantage.

    And if things go worse in Iraq then a Republican candidate, such as Giuliani, who does not divorce himself from Bush's Iraq policy(which Giuliani won't do), will get creamed by Hillary Clinton.

    Basically, the Republicans are sunk in 2008. They can't win for losing regardless of how things go in Iraq.

    Lieberman is a foreign adventurist and a big government liberal domestically - which pretty much defines today's Republican Party.

    Perhaps you have forgotten but the Democrats did nominate him for vice president in 2000.

    I have read where Lieberman might be Giuliani's running mate next year(http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/014/326qnsbj.asp?pg=2).

    A deadly accurate "cheap shot".

    With things going better in Iraq, democrats continue to call for our surrender by making their 58th demand for premature withdrawal.

    Another inaccurate cheap political shot by a Republican.

    But since your party is going to take a big time beat down at the polls in November 2008 I guess that cheap shots is all you Republicans can do.

    You're all wet, KenH. Your attempt at insulting me is misaimed.

    I'm not a Republican and never have been, but my comment is 100% accurate. The behavior of democrats is shameful. They always look for bad news for America to be good news for them.

    As we speak, they are planning their 58th attempt to force the President to prematurely withdraw our troops.

    They have admitted that good news from Iraq is bad news for democrats. It's making their surrender tactics more difficult to complete.

    The behavior of Republicans is shameful. The smear campaign they engaged in against Senator Max Cleland in 2002 was totally despicable.

    You're grasping.

    Cleland is off topic and has nothing to do with democrat surrender tactics concerning Iraq.

    Yeah, carpro, you want to attack the Democrats. However, when the despicable actions of the Republicans are pointed out you want to cut and run.

    That is what he says, Dagwood. And I believe him.

    However, he sure does promote and defend Republicans while denigrating and putting down Democrats.

    Maybe the Republicans should recruit him. :)

    The behavior of both parties is shameful. The republican's used 9/11 to get their world domination agenda rolling and the democrats are using global warming to get their global tax. Both are pushing for amnesty for illegals and the North American Union. They both want to saddle us with their big brother government surveillence warfare welfare state.

    Why anyone who has brains enough to tie their own shoes would support or defend any of them at all is beyond my powers of comprehension.

    As far as I can tell other folks are allowed to post on this board besides just the right-wing Republicans.
