I think this is the turning point in the Iraq war

I think this is the turning point in the war in Iraq. The killing of Zarqawi brought a "treasure trove" of intell. HT to Drudge on JPOST translation of one document found here. Interesting, they are suffering and we are winning (Hear this Dems!) Also they want US to be engaged in a War with IRAN:

While the coalition was continuing to suffer human losses, "time is now beginning to be of service to the American forces and harmful to the resistance," the document said.

The document said the insurgency was being hurt by, among other things, the U.S. military's program to train Iraqi security forces, by massive arrests and seizures of weapons, by tightening the militants' financial outlets, and by creating divisions within its ranks.

"Generally speaking and despite the gloomy present situation, we find that the best solution in order to get out of this crisis is to involve the U.S. forces in waging a war against another country or any hostile groups," the document said, as quoted by al-Maliki's office.

According to the summary, insurgents were being weakened by operations against them and by their failure to attract recruits. To give new impetus to the insurgency, they would have to change tactics, it added.

Matt over at Blogs for Bush has the same view:
I have to say, I believe we are starting to see what could be a major turning on the home front over the Iraq War. The death of Zarqawi, followed by President Bush's surprise visit to Baghdad, gives Congressional Republicans as good a precursor to the forthcoming floor debate on Iraq and the War on Terror in the House.

Do you thing the Dems will change their "Cut and Run" policy now? This proves we are doing the right thing by going where the terrorists are and knocking them down with 500 LBS Bombs! I'm still doing my "Snoopy Dance" that Z-MAN is gone! WO HO!
