    Please, show me the memebrs of the chain of command that think that McChrystal, Patraeus and Mullen are full of ****. Patreaus and McChrystal have both proven themselves on the battlefield, so make sure the people you point to are just as qualified.

    Okay they have proven themeselves then why have we been at war for eight years now? Like I said I will link to different views when I get home.

    Listen, man; I take it you are at JRTC, so I know you have some knowledge. Let's be honest here; if McChrystal and Petraeus were serious about securing the Afghan populace, they should be asking for more troops than 40K. But they can't have them b/c many BCTs are in Iraq still, a war that I'm assuming you support. I'm not sure the same COIN strategy will work in AFG like it did in Iraq, which is what McChrystal is essentially advocating, if I read the memo right. For one, Iraq was easier because the LOC existed and were clear and easy for our leaders to access. Buying off the Sunnis was easy b/c they weren't the Taliban. Not even close, dude. I'm not sure if you've done a tour in AFG (I know 1st CAV has not), but I think the dynamic is so different and so much more difficult that any half-ass "surge" in AFG to implement a COIN strategy maybe a fruitless effort if it's not going to work...I understand it maybe the best we can do right now, but is it really worth it if we can't do it right?

    Tell him not to worry......He'll have plenty of former GOP Congressmen working there with him after next year's Congressional election!
    Norm Coleman doesnt concern me....I voted for Dean Barkley.

    Last I checked both of those Generals did'nt get a major command until after things got bad in Iraq/Afghanistan.
