Here's some more:
General David Petraeus, in his first news conference in Baghdad since he took command last month, also said he saw no immediate need to request more U.S. troops, but reinforcements already requested would likely stay "well beyond the summer."
"There is no military solution to a problem like that in Iraq, to the insurgency of Iraq," Petraeus said.
"Military action is necessary to help improve security ... but it is not sufficient."
He said political progress would require talking to and reconciling with "some of those who have felt the new Iraq did not have a place for them."
I know, there is no military solution to Iraq. We were just supposed to buy them time to get the political solution up and running. There's still a lot of hope out there for Gen Petraeus to save the day. At best, he can just keep buying time for the Iraqi political process to jump start itself, a fact that he appears to be well aware of.
