General McChrystal needs more time for the Afghanistan war campaign…

[ The General with Defense Secretary Gates ]

Afghanistan is NOT Iraq…..

Iraq is turning out to be picnic compared to Afghanistan which is going back to stone age…

There is very little infrastructure as we know it in the industrialized world..


We are fighting a well in trenched enemy that has more war experience that our troops and army…

Remember, we help them fight the Russians…….Right?

General McChrystal is going slow because the initial progress in some area’s have been erased by an enemy that

disappears in the day…

Only to come back a reclaim it territory at night…..

The American and NATO armies are a bit tired after fighting for more than 5 years….

But they have grown smarter and more ruthless in seeking out their enemy’s and prosecuting the war …..

Against the known enemy…..

The general is ok now….

‘But as the US presidential election comes knocking he will have to show results….

I said almost a year ago….

Obama has given him almost everything he’s wanted…

Joint Chief Mullen and Secretary Gates have left him to run this thing on his own…

A former Special Operator Boss…..

McChrystal knows the score…..

While the Oil Spill and other stuff keep him off the front pages……..

He must show results for Obama to keep the left from eating him alive come November next year……
