THE PLAN III – Petraeus and the three-dimensional chess in the dark

Posted on

So, the Commander of the Iraq War Zone, Gen. Petraeus, will have to find a reason for staying in Iraq.
And a reason for staying in command there, too.

What could that be? Does anybody down there still believe in some sort of "military victory"? So where is the chance, where is the opportunity to turn the tides?
The only option is to weaken the enemy forces by splittering them and to get more friendly forces into play.
Like the Germans. Like the French. Like the Israelis. Like the Turkish. And like the Kurds.

Where are these forces?
There are already in position. There are all around of Syria.
