Man Of The Year
By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Wednesday, December 19, 2007 4:20 PM PT

Year In Review: Time selects Vladimir Putin as its "Person of the Year" because of the stability he has brought to Russia. Our choice is Gen. David Petraeus the man who helped bring democracy to the Middle East.

The newsweekly's 2007 honor went to the Russian leader because of Putin's "extraordinary feat of leadership in taking a country that was in chaos and bringing it stability," according to Managing Editor Richard Stengel.

Bringing more than stability.
If returning a nation said to be on the road to democracy to its militaristic and autocratic past is a criterion, Putin is certainly a valid candidate. He has presided over Russia's rise from a shattered remnant of the Soviet Union to a player on the world stage flush with oil revenue and a military returned from the dead.

Our preference is not for tyrants, but for those who defeat them. We prefer those who advance the causes of peace and democracy and who make the world freer and safer.

In other words, we prefer Petraeus, especially by Stengel's criteria. Petraeus has indeed turned in an "extraordinary feat of leadership" by taking Iraq, another country in chaos, and bringing it more than stability. He has brought it true democracy from the grass roots up, and he's done it by transforming a country full of Shiites, Kurds and Sunnis into a nation of Iraqis.
When Petraeus testified before Congress in September on the progress of the surge he planned and was chosen to execute, most refused to believe his realistic but optimistic report. Those who equated Iraq with the Vietnam "quagmire" thought we were being told again about the light at the end of the tunnel.

A few short months later, even Rep. John Murtha, one of the war's loudest critics, concedes "the surge is working." The Iraqi people think so too. Millions who fled are now returning in droves to rebuild their lives, open businesses and raise children in a free and democratic Iraq.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had proclaimed the war to be "lost." And despite the drafting of a constitution and the election of a government, Baghdad had yet to assert control or leadership of a country consumed with sectarian and jihadist violence.

Enter Petraeus, who changed the playbook at halftime. No longer would coalition forces leave their camps, beat up the jihadists and return to base. Now they'd go in greater numbers into the provinces and no longer win and leave, but "clear and hold."

They'd convince Iraqis they weren't going anywhere and neither was America. And under that umbrella of security, remarkable things began to happen. Sunnis and Shiites realized the enemy was not the Americans or each other. It was jihadists who brought nothing but violence, tyranny and oppression.

The uniting of Sunnis and Shiites against al-Qaida's mindless barbarism, coupled with a U.S. surge where troops came and this time stayed, have turned the tide in our favor. In Anbar, once said to be hopelessly lost, tribesman do most of the policing, as 70,000 tribal fighters assist coalition forces inside Baghdad and out.

Violence and casualties, civilian and military, are down dramatically. Iraqis can now stroll the streets of Baghdad even at night, cruising the shops and stopping at cafes in increased safety.

The war is not over, but it is no longer "lost." Al-Qaida in Iraq is on the run, wondering what hit them. Terrorism has suffered a major defeat. Gen. David Petraeus our Person of the Year.<hr /></blockquote>

HEAR HEAR!

And, Mr Soros, I was not involved in the selection of this gift but I couldn't have done any better.

Let it be screamed from the rooftops that the man you accused of treason is a hero. That the torture you bemoaned was condoned by the party you "bought and paid for." That your filthy luchre bought members of the US congress to go against their better judgement and support your efforts of sedition. That you, far more than anyone in the administration, profit obscenely from keeping the war from being won and lost. That the true war profiteers and holders of Halliburton are you and Michael Moore.

Have a very Merry Christmas Mr Soros, and take some of the Holiday Season to try and scrub the blood off of your hands before your followers figure out the scam you have so artfully played upon them.

A repost of the Dawg's link, I wanted to add my thoughts and address it to a different individual.

No plagiarism intended Dawg. Hope you don't mind.

Yes, it's been a very bad week for Gayle, and her chorus here: Hillary is sinkin', The Surge is successful, we seem to be winning the war. The man they declared a "liar" and "traitor" is named MOTY by IBD, Pelosi approved of the "torture", and Uh OH, don't look now, but the eminent historian, Paul Johnson, has declared that he considers George Bush to be an heroic historical figure.
Almost makes you want to take pity on the lefties.

I know the IBD choice of MOTY always makes national headlines every year but... I can't seem to find any of their MOTY nominations for previous years.

Perhaps you can help?

If, as you say, they make national headlines every year, then you should have no trouble. On the other hand, if you are trying to be facetious, perhaps you could tell us what is wrong with their choice.

That's the problem - I can't seem to find any mention of the IBD's prior year choices. Which leads me to wonder if this is their first time ever or if perhaps no one gives a $hit who they choose except a handful of rabid right wingers?

I was just wondering. Thinking that a patriot like you with his finger on the pulse of such things would know the answer to my question. If you can't produce it? Don't worry about it.

Given your poor research skills it's no big deal.

I didn't look for it.
But don't let me stop you.
Yes, I applaud their choice, because I admire Petraeus.
Exactly how does that make me a "rabid right winger"?

Trust me, ole buddy, you are the epitome of what it
means to be a rabid right winger. I would think you
would take that as a compliment. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Ann Coulter may be Rabid but BamaDog is refined - like a fine wine.

Yes, Bama buy Hondo a glass of wine to remind him at the DCC.

That's a damned good idea. After a couple of glasses he may even start to reason.
But I'm not holding my breath for that remote possibility.

Dom Perignon and Billy Beer at the same table.

I'd buy a couple rounds just to be allowed to listen in and observe.

Sorry. I've never been drunk enough to think you characters make any sense.

This from a man who thinks you hire a former Klan Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops to protect civil rights.

hondo, you and your pals are like the canary in the coalmine. When YOU start making sense I know the fumes are getting to me and it's time to get out. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
