If you want to know the nature of the enemy in Iraq just consider yesterday’s bombing where two mentally disabled women were used to carry bombs into two pet markets before being remotely detonated. Their tactics tell us all we need to know about the mindset of the terrorists and what they would do to Iraq, and the Middle East more broadly, if given the opportunity.

The defeat of these terrorists is the most pressing issue of our time. However, much people might have disagreed about whether or not it was right to go into Iraq in the first place, victory is now imperative.
