Wow, guess I have spent the last 5 yrs against the war for nothing
Advertisements [?]
I have sat here and listened to the Petreaus hearing today on C-span, without the msm commentaries and without checking DU for others comments (well maybe once) and feel like I'm a kid again in my alcholic disfunctional family. Denial, denial, denial, no problem here, why your dad is fine even though he slept passed out on the hallway floor all night.

Why, Petraeus is so sincere, there are so many who say his motives are pure, and his assessment is practically from God. But, why do I feel so abused?????? And look at them attacking, for even considering to question Petreaus's motives; its vicious and will continue for days, as a desperate distraction from the real issue.

My worst fears have been realized, and shrub will use this report with support from congress to continue this war unheeded. How can you fight this? We can't, and haven't been able to for 5 years. The resignations which I thought was some kind of victory, was just a way to make people let down their guard, and give hope that compromise and clear thinking would prevail in other issues. Stall, stall, stall, cloud the issue, and keep doing what we want, is shrub's stategy and will never change.
