Good news from Iraq

Instapundit highlights good news from Iraq, from the Washington Post: Insurgent Alliance Is Fraying In Fallujah.

I was recently speaking with someone who's impression of Iraq was a "mess." One thing he cited was "thousands" of foreign fighters pouring into Iraq, far faster than we could deal with them. I doubted that foreigners could effectively hide there without Iraqis harboring them, so if we can convince Iraqis to work against them, we've effectively solved that problem.

If we could round up these foreign fighters, consider the victory that would be in the war on terror. (If the people piloting the suicide car-bombs over there aren't terrorists, what are they?)

One question I need to scrutinize eventually: what's really the difference between Iraq and Afghanistan?
