Today is the appointed day for rejoicing about the victory in Iraq. This has been a different kind of war and I think we all have had a tough time getting our arms around what victory actually means. I will stand with security conditions that allow the Iraqis to govern themselves. They seem to be doing so and we continue to move back as they step forward. Congratulations to all who were part of those efforts and godspeed to all who gave their lives or were wounded in the cause. Those who fought knew they could win, and they did.
