a monkey that will go ape
it all seems dangerously like geek cocktail chatter.
ha! well that's a new one, anyway. as opposed to indignant, self-righteous, finger pointing, of course, which is tried & true.
so, let's rehash. McChrystal issues a devastatingly pessimistic report on Afghanistan and the military is trying to ramp the war up for their own benefit, while Obama initiates a large drawdown (not fast enough for some people, it seems) in Iraq almost immediately after being elected and he's a "Bush clone". alright, then.
I do like your boy's use of "diplomats" in scare quotes.
