Last week, momentarily, at least, Commander Guy thought he was attending an OPEC meeting in Austria (he was at an APEC meeting in Australia). I don't know where Americans think they live, but it sure ain't here.
Kiddies, let's review. In the US, the military is under civilian control. That means military commanders do not start wars and they do not bring them to an end. They just fight them. The rest is up to the civilian leadership - those bumbleheaded fools you voted for - and they're doing a damn poor job of it, IMHO.
The general and that other guy - the diplomat, whatever - are only making a report to Congress today so Commander Guy, who should be making the report, doesn't have to. That's called hiding behind the general's skirts. It's not called bringing the war to an end.
