From the article: "He is a patriot and a brilliant warrior in the cause of freedom."
NO, he is NOT. He wrote the ROE for our soldiers in Afghanistan. The ROE that lead to men on foot patrol and not in armored vehicles. Winning the hearts and minds of Afghani's: What a load. War's are not won by winning hearts and minds. They are won by breaking everything and killing men. Killing lots and lots of men. This breaking and killing is done up to the point that the enemy left standing turns in his weapons and begs you to stop. Petraeus is and has always been a politician; meaning its all about Petraeus. We need soldiers leading our soldiers. Where are our modern day Pattons? They never even make Colonel. The military brass is politicized.
