Petraeus: Things will Get Worse Before They get Better in Iraq

Dumb military policies will get dumber before they get smarter:
The U.S. military commander in Iraq says the war effort may well get harder before it gets easier and American casualties are likely to continue to climb.

Speaking as the Senate was passing legislation to start bringing home U.S. forces in October, Gen. David Petraeus said the war will require "an enormous commitment" by the United States.

How more enormous? Its enormous now:
And he said that while some sectarian killings have dropped by two-thirds in recent months, the overall level of violence in Iraq has remained largely the same.

Translation: the surge ain't workin.
