US must focus on Iraq, less on future wars-Gates
The U.S. military should focus more on winning in Iraq and preparing to fight other insurgencies and less on possible big wars with other countries, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday. "I have noticed too much of a tendency toward what might be called 'next-war-itis' -- the propensity of much of the defense establishment to be in favor of what might be needed in a future conflict," Gates said. "It is true that we would be hard-pressed to launch a major conventional ground operation elsewhere in the world at this time -- but where would we sensibly do that?" he said at a seminar for journalists in Colorado Springs.
So while WE focus on Iraq, WE fail to notice what Gates is planning for Iran. Houdini-Gates.
