Alert. Alert. We’ve got another weak American looking to CUT AND RUN:
An insurgency is a very difficult thing to defeat in a finite period of time. It takes a lot of persistence â€” perseverance is the actual term that we like to use.
“Who knows how long this is going to actually last? But if we get the level of violence down to a point where the Iraqi security forces are more than capable of dealing with it, the insurgency’s days will eventually come to an end. And they will come to an end at the hands of the Iraqis, who, by definition, will always be perceived as more legitimate than an external force like our own.”
Who said it?
Army Col. Sean B. MacFarland, commander of 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division.
Go and get him Fox, er, I mean folks.
