War forever? We can't sustain it

Because I suffered paragraph fatigue this morning, others may as well. Page two of The tour de force* in the Washington Post leads with:

"It's a race against time because by the end of this coming summer we can no longer sustain the presence we have now," said retired Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey, who visited Iraq most recently in June and briefed Cheney, Rice and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "This thing, the wheels are coming off it."

Link to page 2.

* This article was the Note's Must Read article. And, the Note made this little snip:

The war in Iraq is bigger than all of those things listed in Paragraph One, and wars don't take summer vacations.
