Why The Surge Is Working

-Getting on the good side of the local Sunni sheikhs.
-Standing up to Sunni insurgents and Shia militia in Baghdad.
-Clarifying the rules of engagement so that our troops can worry less about being brought up on charges and more on killing the enemy.

It almost seems to easy but it isn't. All except the rules of engagement and standing up to Sadr. To paraphrase Hitchens while on Hugh Hewitt's show, Bush deserves a lot of criticism for not making the necessary changes and not being more prepared in the first place. Fair criticism. Now that things are going our way watch for the insurgents to try new tactics. They have to give the moonbats taking point, afterall.
