Speaking About Jumping The Shark Here....

Ok, so today is not September 15th, when of course Praetor Petraeus will be delivering his report to congress. So if Jumping the Gun on condemning the information before it has been heard, then what in god's name are we suppose to do with say
General David Petraeus, the top US commander in Iraq, strengthened President George W Bush's hand by arguing that the surge of US soldiers in Iraq has worked and troop levels could be substantially reduced within a year.

Petraeus' intention to pull 30,000 US soldiers out of Iraq by July allows Bush to tell war-weary Americans that there is a plan for a partial withdrawal instead of bowing to his Democratic opponents and accepting deadlines.
...
The limited progress, coupled with a withdrawal plan, will likely buy Bush more time to stabilise Iraq - the cornerstone of his legacy as he nears the end of his eight years in office.
...
Petraeus warned Congress that any 'premature' withdrawals of US soldiers would be 'devastating' and undermine the achievements during the last several months.

[ cf ANALYSIS: Iraq general's report could be boost to Bush ]
Yup...

We can offically draw down forces when there is NO Chance that the current regime will be held responsible for any of the actions so far...

Ah yes,
Petraeus and Crocker confronted some of the previous, more negative reports about the progress in Iraq. Petraeus said Iraqi forces were increasingly providing for the country's security and cited dramatic progress in Anbar province, where local Sunni leaders have allied with US forces in combatting al-Qaeda.
[ (op cit) ]
I hope he didn't get any of that all over himself.

Since Gosh, being able to say that Our Sunni's are willing to kick the ass out of Shi'ites, is progress.... Especially when we appropriately designate the Shi'ites as, well Al-Qaeda, because, as we all remember it was the Sunni Taliban in Afghanistan that gave Al-Qaeda a Home, and the war between Iran and Afghanistan, that most folks do not talk about, was Islamist Extremist Sunni v. Islamist Extremist Shi'ites in a Grudge Match In The Chained Cage Of Holy Doctrine....

So should we take seriously any of this pre-game show, or should we wait for the really big stuff, when we have the Full On Grudge Match In The Chained Iron Cold Death Grill Of Holy Struggle Against The GOD HATING America Bashing Liberals against Praetor Petraeus in the Tag Team, No Holds Bar! Anything Goes Match Of Marvelous, What EVER....

Or can we just switch to the half time show and watch the new britany Spears of the NeoCon movement shake her bootie for more ProWarGuys who are willing to do their Major Military Bestist as F101stKB rather than take the risk of following their Surging Urges Into Action...
