    In fact, I would almost prefer he withdraws them as I don't think he is capable of prosecuting a war.
    I hope he withdraws them too, unless they can come up with a realistic evaluation of the situation and a strategy for prosecuting the war. If he can come up with those things, I think he should. He should take as long as he needs to figure it out. The troops are doing the same things they did last month.

    I only wish he would listen to the unconventional viewpoint of Gen Petraeus. I read recently that he had been sidelined. If Obama is listening to the same old big armor generals that got us into trouble in Iraq, then let's get out.

    One thing I'm noticing about the army: everything's a damned initialism or an acronym.
    Not only is communicating easier, but if someone is listening in they won't know what you're talking about, right away and by the time they figure it out, it may be too late for them to react.
