Surge has reduced Violence, Recent Attacks in Iraq is no trend.

A rash of deadly bombings blamed on al-Quida in Iraq does not represent an upward trend in overall violence, which has plummeted around the country in recent months, the U.S. military said Sunday. One of the reasons for the drop is a cease-fire called by anti-U.S. Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. On Sunday the cleric called on his supporters to work on transforming his lethal and powerful Mahdi Army into a charitable organization. "There is no contradiction for the Mahdi Army to be military and at the same time be educational and humanitarian," al-Sadr said in a leaflet handed out at his offices in the Shiite holy city of Najaf. Violence around Iraq has dropped by about 60 percent in the past nine months, mostly because of Al-Sadr's cease-fire, an influx of thousands of U.S. troops and a decision by tens of thousands of Sunnis to join forces with the United States.

A year ago, everyday, the Iraq war was in the news and the only news was how many U.S soldiers were dying. We were losing the war in Iraq at least that's what the Democrats were saying. Shuler and most Democrats voted for troop pullout of Iraq by December 15, 2008. The bill states that the primary purpose of the money, used to support our troops, "should be to transition the mission of United States Armed Forces in Iraq and undertake their redeployment." Where the Democrats wrong?

There is still soldiers dying in Iraq. Where is the news media? Have they given up on Iraq? They used this tool to get the Democrats back in the majority. So they don't need to use this anymore. Well maybe I am wrong. I think the Democrats used the news media as a tool. The Democrats said it was a civil war and all of the news media reported it. The Democrats said we were losing the war and all the news media reported it. Looks like the news media has just become a puppet of the Democrats.
