The new US commander in Iraq , General David Petraeus m made it clear that the reason he was advocating that, militant groups in Iraq would have to be engaged in political discussions is because according to his assesment ; ( There is no military solution to a problem like that in Iraq. Military action is necessary to help improve security... but it is not sufficient. There needs to be a political aspect. ) Regional leaders including king Abdullah of Jordan have echoed the same assesment Of the American military. That is why , despite the objection of Dick Cheney and his dwindling band of neo cons , the American administration is beginning to implement the recommendation of the Baker-Hamiliton report and engaging Iran and Syria in dialouge about Iraq future. How can others , in good fiath , second guess the American military , when General David Petraeus , so clearly states the limits of what the American military can achieve in Iraq ?
