    Sound like an excuse for failure.Have we lost our way? Afghanastan should have been the priority before taking on Iraq and Bin Laden is just as much worthy of being brought to justice.

    Not an excuse for failure.
    The general is right, IMHO.
    The war that jihadists is waging is almost similar in many respects to the protracted war of communist revolutionaries.
    It is ideology-based, their ideology being a global rule of Sharia law.
    Jihad is not personality based.
    The Jihadists see us as encroaching on their Holy Sites and as a symbol of moral and spiritual decadence.
    Anyway, that is what my limited diabetic brain tells me.
    Others on this board have a better view.

    This seems very reasonable.
