  •  I think we all need to be thankful for Petreaus. (0+ / 0-)

    He, among others, helped to save this country from a total failed state in Iraq. While we may not always like it, his leadership really did help us turn a corner there.

    And I know that this likely extended the conflict by years; but at the same time, we were in Iraq.

    Although I don't always agree with Tom Ricks, I HIGHLY recommend 'The Gamble' about the surge. It really shines a light on the processes that it took to buck the military leadership in order to save us from even higher costs and higher rates of lives lost.
