    Default US commanders admit: we face a Vietnam-style collapse

    Interesting article at the Guardian:

    US commanders admit: we face a Vietnam-style collapse


    It seems to me that this article spins some pessimism all-around...

    But the next six months are make-or-break for the US military and the Iraqi government. The main obstacles confronting Gen Petraeus's team are:

    Insufficient troops on the ground

    A "disintegrating" international coalition

    An anticipated increase in violence in the south as the British leave

    Morale problems as casualties rise

    A failure of political will in Washington and/or Baghdad.

    Let's hope for the best

    Default I doubt this !!

    Can't buy this article . How does a British newspaper know so much about what our senior officers think ?
