"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Strategery

Almost three years in Iraq, and the Pentagon is just now taking into consideration the various political factions and their motives to help bring about stability in the region:

A top US military spokesman called for parts of Iraq's raging insurgency to be brought into the political process, while insisting that Al-Qaeda was being hit hard by ongoing offensives.

"We understand the capabilities, the vulnerabilities and the intentions of each group of the insurgency -- the foreign fighters, the Iraqi rejectionists and the Saddamists," Major General Rick Lynch told reporters.

"The group in the middle, the Iraqi rejectionists -- which includes the Shia rejectionists and the Sunni rejectionists -- we believe that deliberate outreach will allow them to participate in the political process and allow them to become part of the solution and not part of the problem," he said.

I suppose with a more competent group in White House, this would come as quite a shock. But sadly, neither is the case.
