Quotes of the Day for 10 April 2003 – Victory

The war to liberate Iraq may continue fitfully for a while, but victory has clearly been gained, and yesterday will be noted as the time it came to pass. It was the first day that change was certain enough for the population to dare smile. Churchill's warning below is valid, but it looks like the coalition is willing to work at peace, and the soldiers are much happier passing out food and water to smiling Iraqis than nervously watching them. To Victory!
