General David Petraeus’ 3 Keys to Victory…

That’s the opening phrase of a thought-provoking article by Bing West in the New York Daily News, published this morning.  Lays out the major issues very nicely, and is of extra relevance given that there is every indication that the administration will continue the current policy basically as-is .  I found it via the Small Wars Journal blog, which is worth perusing as well.  Particularly interesting are the article “Petraeus Gets Another Tough Job” and the comments which follow.
