Petraeus as quoted by Woodward:
"You have to recognize also that I don't think you win this war. I think you keep fighting. It's a little bit like Iraq, actually. . . . Yes, there has been enormous progress in Iraq. But there are still horrific attacks in Iraq, and you have to stay vigilant. You have to stay after it. This is the kind of fight we're in for the rest of our lives and probably our kids' lives."
That would be something like the next hundred years.
When will we rid ourselves of this insane thinking?
Meanwhile, could someone pls. ask the general what exactly his next century of "fighting" is for?
