Petraeus will Never declare Victory in Iraq

General Petraeus on victory definition in Iraq

Excerpts:

[Petraeus] said he did not know that he would ever use the word "victory": "This is not the sort of struggle where you take a hill, plant the flag and go home to a victory parade... it's not war with a simple slogan."

(...)

The outgoing commander of US troops in Iraq, Gen David Petraeus, has said that he will never declare victory there.

Meanwhile, just today I got a letter from our ol' pal InSane, begging me for funds to help pay for the war in Iraq (which we are clearly winning), so we can achieve victory.

Perhaps InSane and Petraeus could grab a coffee together sometime. They should probably chat.
