Broken Army, Incompetence and Are We Winning?

Army Stretched to Breaking Point

What's left of the Navy
Andrew Krepinevich, a retired Army officer who wrote the report under a Pentagon contract, concluded that the Army cannot sustain the pace of troop deployments to Iraq long enough to break the back of the insurgency.

Bush the Incompetent

Booger Eatin' Dumb
How could a president get these things so wrong? Incompetence may describe this presidency, but it doesn't explain it. For that, historians may need to turn to the seven deadly sins: to greed, in understanding why Bush entrusted his new drug entitlement to a financial mainstay of modern Republicanism. To sloth, in understanding why Incurious George has repeatedly ignored the work of experts whose advice runs counter to his desires.
Daily Kos: We're Winning the Long Struggle
Like Gandhi said in the over-quoted line: "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you ... then you win."
