Thank goodness for Reuters

Without it we'd never get such banal headlines as this: Afghan war at critical stage, says Petraeus

At what point is a war NOT at a critical stage? As long as Obama is President, this will be at a critical stage, and maybe thereafter. Anyplace in the region where government control is absent is a potential refuge for terrorists to gather, train and export suicide attackers. Any neglected, isolated area can become toxic if we don't catch it in time. This is a long term effort. We can't put a time limit on it, because once we pull out, if we leave a vacuum, it will be filled by people who wish us harm. That's all pretty obvious, or should be.
