From Woodward’s new book, Saint Petraeus explaining his foreign policy in Afghanistan (not sure if Obama was consulted, but does it really matter?):

Woodward quotes Petraeus as saying, “You have to recognize also that I don’t think you win this war. I think you keep fighting. It’s a little bit like Iraq, actually. . . . Yes, there has been enormous progress in Iraq. But there are still horrific attacks in Iraq, and you have to stay vigilant. You have to stay after it. This is the kind of fight we’re in for the rest of our lives and probably our kids’ lives.”

Winning is for quitters. 

Real men keep fighting.

Bonus Petraeus:

During a flight in May, after a glass of wine, Petraeus told his own staffers that the administration was “[expletive] with the wrong guy.”

This country is so fucked.
