I've Been Thinking:
It came as a surprise.
Jalal Talibani, the newly elected president of Iraq, just asked the UN Security Council to keep American forces and their allies in Iraq beyond the end of the year deadline.
Talibani asked that the presence of American troops be linked to Iraq's need, not contingent on any specified date.
More important than the actual request was Talibani's public admission that US forces are essential to getting his newly-configured country up and functioning.
This is exactly what everyone has been asking for.
Iraqi locals showing appreciation for US efforts assisting them in their struggle toward democracy and freedom.
I honestly never thought we would see this day.
About that, I am glad to say, I was wrong.
But I was also right.
Few people will know about Talibani's request.
There has been almost no coverage of this humongous and newsworthy act.
