Weekend Quote

Michael Yon sums up General David Petraeus, Iraq, and the surge in one sentence:

It took enormous guts to take the job at this stage of the war, when it’s like an airplane with one of the wings blown off, and there is this pilot in the back of the airplane who easily could have parachuted out the back—where some of the others already have gone—but instead he says, “I can still fly this thing!
You should read the whole thing, though, not just the one sentence.
