    By the way where was this great general during the first six years of Bush and Cheney's war in Iraq? Was he involved in making any decisions reguarding how it was waged and the recommendations of just how many troops initially it would take to do the job properly?

    Was he out of the picture when the previous administration chose their policies reguarding Afghanistan?

    He was in Iraq since 2003.

    The Bush/Cheney example is a great one because of the level of absolute idiocy in the White House. I still cannot believe they allowed Bremer to step foot into Iraq.

    Where were you that you are so blind to his bio?

    Someone correct me if I am wrong but if Obama approved the troop increase wouldn't it not take effect until next year?

    Petraeus has already denied this rumor several times. He's waiting on the Joint Chiefs job that will open up when Adm. Mullen leaves. But, that won't be for a while. He'll keep the CJCS through past 2012.

    He's an ambitious guy, but 2012 is too soon. Maybe 2016.

    I think at this point it would be better to go back later when the POTUS has the resolve and the backbone to do what needs to be done.

    Lets say you are right... What effect does didding for a few months have on getting troops there "in a year"?
