Another Measure of Our Success in Iraq

Shhhh... don't tell Harry Reid, John Murtha, or any of the rest of the MoveOnocrats...

Iraqis who fled their country are now returning home by the thousands.

Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, spokesman for the U.S.-Iraqi efforts to pacify Baghdad, said border crossings by returning refugees numbered 46,030 in October alone. He attributed the large numbers to the "improving security situation" resulting from the successful military surge orchestrated by Gen. David Petraeus.

"We are receiving tremendous numbers of displaced families at the borders of Syria and Jordan," says Maj. Gen. Mohsen Abdul Hassan, head of Iraq's department of border enforcement. "We have difficulties dealing with the large numbers. There are long lines of vehicles."

Of course, we all know Iraq is a failure, that there can never be any success there, that Iraqis want us out, etc, etc, etc.

Meanwhile, the citizens of that nation who once fled in terror from terrorists are now voting... with their feet... and returning.
