Not a change in policy

Watched President Obama's presser. It's done. McChrystal is out; Petraeus is in. Really didn't want to hear this from POTUS: "This is a change in personnel but it is not a change in policy."

Recycling the same failed policy, headed by the same General who engineered that policy in the first place isn't going to get us anywhere. But then again, perhaps there's still hope it will all change. It's not like Obama could have fired McChrystal and announced a new policy at the same presser. And on the bright side, at least there's some buzz building again for getting the hell out of there altogether.

Don't really see why they keep putting off the inevitable. This is never going to look like a win, no matter what we do.

We haven't won a war since 1945, so I doubt that many people now alive remember the look and feel of victory.

Let's just tell them we won and have a parade. Disney can build a "Victory Land" park and we'll all go.

LOL. I think a lot of us have been saying that for a long time.
