General David Petraeus' testimony to Congress about the U.S.-led coalition's surge offered some cautious optimism. Suggesting that there still is progress being made. But that progress is fragile and reversible.
All three candidates for president listened to his assessment, which was the topic of today's News Talk Online on Paltalk.
Many in the News Talk audience believe that it's time to withdraw. Yet others agree with Petraeus, that it's too soon to withdraw. They argued that a withdrawal will turn Iraq over to al Qaeda, which would then declare victory over the United States.
