Reconstruction Conference Offers Hope For Ramadi

This is a copy of the post I left at the Victory Caucus.

I think it is well worth it to excerpt from this Defend America article, something you will never see in the Big Media

CAMP RAMADI, Iraq, March 9, 2007 — A cooperation, a presence and a movement by the people – these are the things that have improved conditions in the Anbar providence so Ramadi could begin rebuilding, said U.S. Marine Brig. Gen. John Allen, deputy commander Multi-National Forces – West following a reconstruction and economic growth conference March 7 in Ramadi.

The conference brought together coalition commanders and prominent city officials to highlight some of the upcoming reconstruction projects for the Ta'meem district in Ramadi.

"I really believe you have to look long and hard to find a closer relationship between the Iraqi forces and coalition forces," Allen said.

"First, the coalition forces have been fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with the Iraqi army and Iraqi police against the terrorists. And all of those parties, whether they are the coalition forces or the Iraqi police or army have paid a great price to fight the terrorists in this area."

Quite frankly, it just goes to show that our friends on the Left haven't realized that a) there is more to Operation Iraqi Freedom then just fighting, and b) we are actually working with the Iraqi's to help them have a better life. 

Definately read the rest.

Meanwhile, to add to that, have the Drive By's told you about this?

WASHINGTON, March 12, 2007 – Coalition and Iraqi forces captured 48 suspected insurgents and killed eight, and insurgents killed more than 20 civilians in several attacks over the past few days in Iraq, military officials reported.

Coalition forces captured 22 suspected terrorists during operations today targeting al Qaeda and foreign fighter facilitators.

During operations in Mosul, coalition forces captured four suspected terrorists allegedly involved in the planning of improvised-explosive-device attacks on friendly forces.

A senior foreign fighter facilitator was captured north of Habbaniyah, and two suspects who are reportedly involved in weapons facilitation were detained in Baghdad.

Northeast of Tarmiyah, coalition forces captured 13 suspected terrorists with alleged involvement in weapons movement and foreign fighter facilitation.

South of Amiriyah, two suspected terrorists with alleged ties to foreign fighter facilitation and weapons movement were also detained.

"Coalition forces will continue deliberate and methodical operations in order to pursue, capture or kill terrorists trying to prevent a peaceful and stable Iraq," said Army Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, Multinational Force Iraq spokesman.

And there is much more in that Defense Link article. Looks like the Surge is, well, working.
