Gen. Patreaus confirmed 99-0 to take over

Does this give you more hope that things can change in Af? or at least advance?

  • I think it will! It has at least brought things to the forefront with Afganistan again, and Patreaus has kept to the time line with the Iraq withdrawal. I think its a good move.

  • I swear to GOD I am so flippin confused on this. Petraeus was just this side of Satan to the left when Obama took office! They HATED him on the left. It's just so weird that NOW he is going to save the day......

  • The General in charge is not the problem. It goes a little higher up than that.

  • All these dems berated him and PBO talked smack about him and suddenly he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I think he has the know-how. I hope he has the backing and support to do what really needs to be done.

  • I have to hope so, but I think it all depends on the kind of support he receives from our elected leadership.  I would have to think that they are on the same page as far as how to proceed.  I guess time will tell.

  • Yes. I do believe that things will begin to change over there. Patreaus did a wonderful job in Iraq.. and he will continue to do the same in Afghanistan. My husband and I have faith in him, and we are a military family.

  • Although I am not of a military family, I have faith in General Patreaus. He is respected by the troops and we can only hope there are less causalities than in past years... both civilian and military.

  • We have to have hope that he will lead the military where they need to be at this point. I do have hope at least. DH met him when he reenlisted in 2008 and said he seems like a good man.
