Anyway, those Generals were stuck in a "war is won in the first half" mentality and they were advising Bush. They wanted out of a nation building exercise. Of course, the real game in a regime change situation is "played in the second half".
I am extremely concerned over reports that Petraeus' opinion is not being sought after by Obama.

What's inexcuseable is the partisan bigotry necessary to beleve that:
-Signals of indecision out of Washington do NOT hurt our allies and do NOT embolden our adversaries
-The White House does NOT need to stop dithering while America's armed forces are in danger
-It is NOT time for President Obama to do what it takes to win a war he has repeatedly and rightly called a war of necessity.
