National Strategy for Victory in Iraq

I continue to read liberals’ and Democrat Congressmen’s comments claiming that (1) there is no plan for Iraq and (2) they do not know what victory means.  Well gee, I guess none of these people know how to read.  Or, more likely, they are deliberately lying.

The fact is, as anyone in the military can tell you, there has been a plan since prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq and it has been implemented by our military members since the fall of Baghdad.  The problem is that plans don’t always “go according to plan”.  Anyone with half a brain knows that.  Then again, we are talking about liberals and Democrats here so…. hmmm.  Seriously, I don’t believe liberals and Democrat Congressmen have half a brain.  However, I do believe they are being deliberately dishonest or deliberately ignorant.

Here is a document from November 2005, entitled “National Strategy for Victory in Iraq”.  The very first section is entitled “Victory in Iraq Defined”.  Imagine that!  I am just one person working diligently to keep myself informed and I found this information from reading MilBlogs.  What are the excuses for all those Democrat Congressmen, who have numerous aides doing their research and writing their speeches for them, to not know about this?  Again, I say their excuse is that they are being deliberately dishonest or ignorant.  Either way, they do not deserve to be in positions of leadership.

Be sure to read this entire document

But, if you are too lazy to do that, just read this and stop spouting your ignorance that you have no idea what victory means.  And again, you will notice that this was released on the White House website November 30, 2005.  It has been public knowledge for 14 months.  I know a lot of people within the last 14 days, let alone 14 months, who have been claiming and whining “I don’t know what victory means”.  Well, they don’t know, because they are not informed, not because Victory has not been defined.


As the central front in the global war on terror, success in Iraq is an essential element in the long war against the ideology that breeds international terrorism. Unlike past wars, however, victory in Iraq will not come in the form of an enemy’s surrender, or be signaled by a single particular event — there will be no Battleship Missouri, no Appomattox. The ultimate victory will be achieved in stages, and we expect:

  • In the short term:
    • An Iraq that is making steady progress in fighting terrorists and neutralizing the insurgency, meeting political milestones; building democratic institutions; standing up robust security forces to gather intelligence, destroy terrorist networks, and maintain security; and tackling key economic reforms to lay the foundation for a sound economy.
  • In the medium term:
    • An Iraq that is in the lead defeating terrorists and insurgents and providing its own security, with a constitutional, elected government in place, providing an inspiring example to reformers in the region, and well on its way to achieving its economic potential.
  • In the longer term:
    • An Iraq that has defeated the terrorists and neutralized the insurgency.
    • An Iraq that is peaceful, united, stable, democratic, and secure, where Iraqis have the institutions and resources they need to govern themselves justly and provide security for their country.
    • An Iraq that is a partner in the global war on terror and the fight against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, integrated into the international community, an engine for regional economic growth, and proving the fruits of democratic governance to the region.
