Translation: PRISM has more on me than I have already admitted to.
What really frustrates me about this circus is, that when one considers the “best” outcome for the United States, it cannot be seen.
Alright General, what else didn’t you confess too? How does it feel to be owned?
The best outcome IMO is let the United Nations handle it, and if they discredit themselves one more time, have the U.S. pull out of it.

He needs to go climb back under his rock.
David H. Petraeus, you are smarter and better than this.
RATS, IMO, slither.
This is NUTZ! My understanding of politics is turned on its head....Why is this crap being pushed? Why have i become so antiwar unless it is brought to our shores? I feel like a hippie...dude or man...or maybe even Daddio.
Drudge has reported the EU and world leaders as well as Petraeus are for the US going into Syria. Nonintervention is beginning to crumble. Obama will get his way on this. We shall see.
BLACKMAIL. It’s the Obama Way.
What did he just let slip?
Who? The un doesn’t have any more than member countries give it. And we give it too damn much. In addition, there’s nothing “left” to discredit.
Petraeus said in a four-sentence statement provided to POLITICO.Total blackmail going on there.
Obviously he’s not. You don’t get positions like his without selling your soul to the new world order.
