al Qaeda, congressional Democrats, and the mainstream press, notably the Washington Post, all aim to break the American will to fight.

boy, what nice little associations you can make there, pal! Maybe you are just too blind/stupid to realize that the Americans don't want to fight this anymore.

'libertarian' is just another word for embarrassed republicans. or, you could simply call it 'anarchy for everyone except me and my stuff'.

Maybe you are just too blind/stupid to realize that the Americans don't want to fight this anymore.

Maybe you just don't realize that we have to fight this, and that if we don't fight it now, we'll just have to fight it later.

And as for the "nice little associations, they can be purely coincidental, but the fact is there is a common goal among them -- getting American troops out of Iraq.

Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha! You know that the military needs the help, enlist! No excuses, just go fight the good fight. It's never too late. Look at all the cool stuff on the left of your page, do it, be a mensch!

You're kidding right? You're suggesting that a HIGHLY decorated Marine Corps general, with 34 years of active duty service, doesn't understand the problem, but you of course do. Do I have that right? And you're not putting that up as some kind of snark?

I don't know, what am I saying, you've probably got plenty of years of service experience to draw on, right? Spent some time at the Navy Post Graduate School or the Army War College, right?

Of course you do...

I think General Petraeus believes we can win. I'm not allowed to agree with him?

JCS

Ah, but Mr. Bowler that's not what you said - "Maybe it's just Jack Sheehan who doesn't know where the hell they're going" - Which I'm sure you'll have to agree is vastly different than saying that Gen. Patraeus believes we can win or disagrees with Gen. Sheehan, correct?

There's another troubling aspect to this whole "War Czar" thing that I'd like to see addressed. Wouldn't the "War Czar" essentially be a "Commander-in-Chief" in everything but name? And if so, don't we already have one?

Tom Bowler

Good point on the Commander-in-Chief issue, JCS. I will admit that I had not said anything about General Petraeus in my original post. But I should also point out that I said, "Maybe it's Jack Sheehan who doesn't know... which I would expect people to understand leaves open the possibility that, maybe he does. In any case I don't share his gloom.

overall command of operations in Afghanistan and Iraq

I thought that job was taken? Commander in chief or something like that...

Yes, exactly. The new position would dovetail nicely with what we have now: a Commander-in-Chief in name only.

Wow! All you "different" commenters seem to speak with one voice in the same annoying, insipid tone! And what interesting email addresses you all have!
