This report from the Times of London suggests that foreign jihadis are bailing on Iraq and heading to Afghanistan to fight. This will undoubtedly be spun by the Democrats and the media (right...like there's a difference) as another example of a failed Bush administration policy. Nothing could be further from the truth.
First, it's confirmation that global jihadis view Iraq as a lost cause. Which, of course, it now is. Al Qaeda in Iraq is, for all intents and purposes, thoroughly defeated.
Second, this will allow combat forces already being drawn down in Iraq to be redeployed to Afghanistan, in effect chasing these medieval zealots into a kill zone where they can be destroyed.
Iraq is the hammer, Afghanistan the anvil.
