Here’s some clips from Say Anything. I’m going to quote his summary and link so you can see the actual text. Either way, it’s encouraging.
The violence is not “mounting.”
Our troops are not dispirited or “worn out.”
Our troops are not “terrorizing” (as John Kerry put it) Iraqis.
Progress is slow, but that was expected:
The war in Iraq is not especially unpopular here at home:
We are making progress.
Iraqis are relatively upbeat despite many countries failing to back up their aid pledges for Iraq:
The Iraqis are beginning to fight for themselves.
Support for terrorism is declining.
Negative media reporting is misleading.
There is a groundswell of support for democracy.
