The Art of Counterinsurgency

Is Lt. Gen. David Petraeus the right man for the job in Iraq? Well, he quite literally wrote the book (the Army field manual on counterinsurgency) so he's well positioned by way of understanding what we face. A good biography of the General is available here and as troops are arriving as we speak I would like to see General Petraeus get out in front of the MSM on stories concerning the troops, negative or positive. We cannot fight a generational war without resolve and perseverance and for that we need confidence at home.
