Petraeus also decided it would be a good idea to have the troops get out of their armored vehicles more for the old hearts and minds crap. Result? More of our guys getting their legs and other parts blown off. In spite of the obvious stupidity of this move, the policy was continued for quite a while.
When Petraeus saw that Afghanistan was starting to deteriorate, he turned it over to some other guy and came back to the US as the conquering hero.
He’s a self-promoting jerk.
No one have ever been able to pacify Afghanistan so I wouldn’t blame General Petraeus.
Well, Petraeus and Omugabe both still have their legs and other body parts, right?
So what's the problem?
