Petraeus prepares to beat the war drum



The Bush administration claims that things are going swimmingly in Iraq, but the administration refuses to release the most recent complete NIE before the testimony of General Petraeus in front of Congress next week.

The Brits are worried that Petraeus will be the advance PR man for a new war in Iran.


When he leaves, Bush will have left this country in a terrible state, even if he were to do nothing between no and January, but an excursion into Iran will ensure a legacy as the least competent leader of this country, ever.

And who will fight this war? I just saw the movie "Stop-Loss," which is... okay.... as art, but should be seen if only so everyone realizes that the people finishing their tours in the Middle East are often turned right around and sent back again. Inauguration Day is nine months away -- will there be a draft instituted before then?
