Gen Myers: War Going Well (let's stay some more decades...)

Joint Chiefs Chairman: War Going Well
JOHN HANNA
Associated Press
LAWRENCE, Kan. - The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Friday that the war in Iraq is going "reasonably well" but acknowledged the United States faces long-term involvement there.

Gen. Richard Myers told reporters that fighting terrorism also is a long-term commitment and said, "Decades is probably not unreasonable."

Myers also said loosening a ban on top members of Saddam Hussein's former Baath party is important "so they feel a part of the new Iraq." He also defended the Pentagon's policy against releasing photos of flag-draped coffins of soldiers.

"There's some really tough challenges in Iraq, but it's actually going reasonably well," he said.

3. If the war is going so well
I would hate to see what happens if something bad happened.

4. It's going well for the war profiteers, who are now guaranteed years
of "booming" business.
