US Commander Warns of Long Struggle in Iraq


You think?

With the first wave of additional soldiers already arriving in Iraq to bolster a new campaign to secure this beleaguered capital city, the top American military commander warned that it could take months before there are any real signs of progress.

Well we've waited five years, what's another couple of months? You know, besides the hundreds of US soldiers going to lose their lives during that time span.

“As with any plan, there are no guarantees of success, and it’s not going to happen overnight,” said Gen. George Casey. “But with sustained political support and the concentrated efforts on all sides I believe that this plan can work.”

That's the trick though ain't it? That whole "concentrated efforts on all sides" part.
