OPINION:

The “weariness” is due to the lack of leadership/direction/purpose by -0 and his administration.

Americans both home and abroad will be lose their “weariness” once a strong PRO-AMERICA leader who can/will lead our country with vigor and purpose emerges.

McChrystal was effed from the get go. Operating and planning from the Bush NSS, he accepted his job as Gates was still there.

Obama failed to deliver the manning after months of delays of his own National Security Strategy.

The rules of engagement changed from week to week and finally, Obama answered with about 1/3 the troops being requested approved.

McChrystal knew this would not fufill his plan for success, as did most of the rest of the folks in theatre.

I have know idea what a Petreus demotion brings to the table. But, at least, Petreus has an Obama NSS to work from to formulate a strategy.

Yes, he is correct.
