I Think the Phrase That Covers It Goes Something Like This:

Fat chance.

…It’s not clear yet that the “senior advisers” who were mocking McChrystal’s assumptions will prevail. In his 25 minutes on Air Force One, McChrystal may have used his knowledge and experience to convince Obama that his judgment was better than that of the armchair generals that the president had listened to for three hours the day before. Maybe Obama will choose to wage his “war of necessity” in the way the general he selected believes is necessary for us to succeed.

Barone finds the possibility implausible as well…

…But I wouldn’t bet heavily on it — not any more, in fact, than I would have bet on Chicago’s chances of hosting the 2016 Olympic games.

How many kids did we lose this weekend?

    “Fat chance” covers it well.

    And we lost too many good troops this weekend, especially if President All-About-Me decides to listen to Biden & Company instead of the professionals.

    This is also being held hostage to the healthcare legislation. Socialized medicine is far more important than a few “burger flippers”. I fear it will become far worse before it gets any better. The enemy sees the weakness and will exploit it by killing as many troops as they can as quickly as they can.
