Septober, Octember, No Wonder

What would Stan Laurel say? AP (07.20.07):
"For months September has been cast as a pivotal time for determining the course of the war in Iraq, yet a top general now says a solid judgment on the U.S. troop buildup there may not come until November.

Lt. Gen. Raymond Odierno told reporters he would need beyond September to tell if improvements in Iraq represent long-term trends.

U.S. general says solid judgment about troop buildup in Iraq not likely until November

"'In order to do a good assessment I need at least until November,' said Odierno, a deputy to Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. military commander in Iraq."

No problem. By then, the Iraqi Parliament will be back from vacation. Then we'll see some real action, huh.
