Petraeus Differs with McCain, Palin on Iraq Assessment

General Petraeus has a sharply different view from McCain and Palin on the status of the Iraq war.  He is not talking at all in terms of victory and seemed to mock McCain’s statements when he said

“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 a war with a simple slogan.”

As Patrick Cockburn points out in the linked article, if McCain believes what he is telling the American people, he is dangerously out of touch.
