Gen. Stanley McChrystal Says Fight Is in Afghanistan, Not Yemen 
Gen. Stanley McChrystal says he is not discouraged by estimates that there are many more al Qaeda fighters in Yemen than there are in Afghanistan where he is overseeing a major surge in U.S. troops.
The troop surge begins as the first of 30,000 U.S. troops arrive in Afghanistan.

McChrystal, America's top general in Afghanistan, was reacting to a question from ABC's "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer who cited intelligence estimates that there are only 100 al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan while there are as many as 300 in Yemen.

"I don't think that this war's in the wrong place," McChrystal said in his exclusive interview with Sawyer. "I think that the Afghan people both need and deserve this assistance..."    

I'm going to break my own rule and comment: with one of the toughest jobs ever laid on a commander, I admire General STANLEY McCHRYSTAL.  Click on the link to watch his interview with DIANNE SAWYER, who illustrates why she has both admirers and detractors.

From his comments, two things strike me about the man.

(1st) He believes we should finish one war, before starting another.

And (2) more nebulous, war sometimes is not the best solution to a problem.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
