It is all explained over at ZombieTime and please take the time to read the whole thing.
By every measure, The United States and coalition forces have conclusively defeated all enemies in Iraq, pacified the country, deposed the previous regime, successfully helped to establish a new functioning democratic government, and suppressed any lingering insurgencies. The war has come to an end. And we won.
If our media, our incoming administration, our outgoing administration and out cowardly politicians won't inform the people, then maybe it is time for you to look at the information for yourself and either dispute it or acknowledge it.
Congratulations to our military and to President Bush, because without their courage in the face of defeat, we never would have obtained VICTORY IN IRAQ.

Warning, video as well as accounts of what happened may be offensive in language and content.
Video found at YouTube here and shown below. Titled "JHOPSF - Chased out of the Castro District - 11-14-08"
The background from KTVU.com and below that will be an eyewitness account.
In San Francisco's Castro District, people on both sides of the same-sex marriage controversy confronted each other on Friday night, as police tried to keep the peace. Proposition 8 passed in a close vote and eliminated the right of same-sex couples to marry.
Eyewitness account, posted on multiple sites, including Free Republic, Joe.My.God., and Today and That Day.
We wanted to write you and fill you guys in on what happened to our team here in San Francisco last night. This is what happened from Daniel's point of view and gives a pretty good overview of the night.Whether one agrees with the sentiment of the Justice House of Prayer San Francisco or not, they do have the right of free speech and to hold their sessions, just as their opponents have the right to protest them.
Physical abuse, on the other hand is not a right of the gay activists that clearly are out of control, to the point where the police, in riot gear, had to step in.
This is just a conservative point of view as many from the left, gay activists themselves are practically pleading for the violent activists to cease and desist.
Some of the fringe elements in the gay community risk undoing the massive, positive wave of peaceful protest this weekend with intolerance and even violence. Cut it out, morons. It's sickening. Christians - even Christianists, who seek to impose their religious convictions into laws that would actively punish gay couples - nonetheless have First Amendment rights that must be respected at all times.
Pam's House Blend, the title says it all:
This kind of activism isn't helping
Joe.My.God (linked above)
I'm really worried about where this is heading. Somebody is going to get killed and we're all going to lose. I'm pissed, we're all fucking pissed, but this is going to a bad place. And I say that knowing that if I had been in the Castro on Friday night, I probably would have been right there in it. We've got the moral upper hand in this fight and every day more and more people see that. Be we have GOT to keep these things peaceful. Yell, fuck yeah, YELL. But don't touch. Don't hit. Don't throw. Please.
Needless to say, but I am going to say it anyway, is that not all gay activists are taking to the streets in a violent manner, but those who are, are completely out of control and it is escalating.
There was a vote on Proposition 8, 52 percent of Californians voted to pass a ban on gay marriage. It passed.
Gay activists need to work towards guaranteeing the same types of rights afforded to people married under the traditional definition of marriage, fight for those rights, but use the courts to do so, not your fists, threats or intimidation, because those will backfire and already are showing a backlash.
