War in Iraq

An article from the Wall Street Journal on how the war in Iraq is going. The title of the article: "Let's surge some more".

The intro:

It is said that generals always fight the last war. But when David Petraeus came to town it was senators – on both sides of the aisle – who battled over the Iraq war of 2004-2006. That war has little in common with the war we are fighting today.

I may well have spent more time embedded with combat units in Iraq than any other journalist alive. I have seen this war – and our part in it – at its brutal worst. And I say the transformation over the last 14 months is little short of miraculous.

We should pray for peace there, and the establishment of a strong Christian witness.
