"By the way, I'm not running for president."

-- Gen. David Petraeus in an out-of-the-blue statement to a Vanity Fair photographer shooting him for a profile in the May issue. Thanks for clarifying, sir.

Pity! It could be change we could believe in - an Eisenhower moment perhaps. Glad to see he has a sense of humor how sad that the Post
doesn't! Ah well that still leaves us with "Rahmbo" just in case it's a one termer for the Big O. It's the Eye Of Tiger all over again!

who, in the name of good sense, would vote for any military officer involved in the messes in Iraq or Afganistan?
These war efforts have been impressive only in the horrible number of soldiers and civilians their efforts have killed.

edismae obviously doesn't understand the hierarchy of the civilian/military system. Politicians make the sometimes ill-conceived decisions to go to war, not the military. The question should be phrased as "who, in the name of good sense, would vote for any POLITICIAN involved in the messes in Iraq or Afganistan?

If anything, we should be kissing Patreus' you-know-what for mostly bailing us out of the Iraq mess. Such unintellectual dribble from posters like edismae are uncalled for and further underscores just how misinformed the American populace has become on civilian/military relations and global security for that matter.
