Petraeus & Crocker Draw The Line In The Sand

Wow. I just sat down and flipped on the House hearings, expecting not to hear much of anything different there than yesterday. Wrong. Petraeus and Crocker just laid out the cost of leaving Iraq in very explicit terms far beyond what they tactfully explained yesterday. I think they are getting tired and a bit exasperated.

I will post the transcript as soons as I can find it. In essence, Iran will make a move into Iraq. Al Qaeda will move back into Iraq. There will be chaos in the Middle East. The players in the Middle East will look upon the U.S. as unwilling to pay the price necessary to win and act towards us accordingly in the future with dire and long term consequences.
