Quotes-start.png "Nobody wants to overburden the military, but we can think of nothing that would "break" it more completely than losing a war.

The Army and Marines in Iraq have adapted from their earlier troubles to a counterinsurgency strategy that is working. General Petraeus should be given as long as he needs." Quotes-end.png
