Who do you believe, Gen Petraeus or the media? A 4 Star General versus the leftist/anti-Bush media?
I think this is a no brainer. Moveon.org's add only further lets us know that the surge is working and that Democats know it. Success for our troops is defeat for our democrats . AND THEY KNOW IT! Just you watch. As the situation on the ground gets better and better and better, the propaganda attacks on our soldiers and Bush will increase. As we begin to turn the situation around in Iraq and give the Iraqi's a chance at freedom and peace, the democrats and liberals and leftist Europeans' will only increase their assult against our nation. Anyway, Petraeus is doing a great job - though there is still much to be done - and it seems as though George Bush is going to stand firm and do what we all know to be right. To win in Iraq. We are going to win people - but it may take a few more years - lets give our support to our soldiers and our President!!

WASHINGTON, Sep 12 (IPS) - In sharp contrast to the lionisation of Gen. David Petraeus by members of the U.S. Congress during his testimony this week, Petraeus's superior, Admiral William Fallon, chief of the Central Command (CENTCOM), derided Petraeus as a sycophant during their first meeting in Baghdad last March...

Think about this, people who are complaining that the military isn't working are people that 90% don't have any military experience, only know what little bit about the military from watching old world war 2 movies, and stuff on History channel, or playing pc war games. How can these people make comment on real... More

There is no doubt that the General is an honest and intelligent man. He has given his report to congress as ordered and they basically call him a liar. So if one of these Democrats actually do take office as president, where will they get their military advice from? No doubt they would want a special investigator who... More

..."any" man in the Military of the United States of America who has attained the rank of "4" Star General and served this Country as General Petraeus has is not a liar... if you need an example of a liar review the testimony of William Jefferson Clinton during his hearings before Congress in 1998.

DEFINITELY the good General Petraeus. And this makes one thing VERY CLEAR about Hillary's candidacy: since she did not refute the MoveOn.Org add smearing the general's name, what kind of commander-in-chief would she make if she would not even believe her own generals who are NON political in their evaluations of combat...

Sadly this correlates to Vietnam. A year before the withdrawal the president and government knew it had to be done. If they had acted at that time many lives would have been saved. Instead they toughed it out and played out the debacle on the world TV screens. Bush is just repeating history!!!!

General Petraeus by far but I also think he looks threw the eyes of a military leader who does not like to fail.

I'd believe General Petraeus over the American hating self-loating lefties of the NY Times and other leftist newspapers and television media anyday. Hope US servicemen/woman read this blog. They will know majority of US citizens support them and their leader.

Yes, but look at General Westmoreland during Vietnam. We had to artificially increase the body count to show the folks back home that we were making progress. I have been skeptical of what I hear from Generals ever since then. I do support the troops because my child is serving in Iraq.
