The battle over Iraq inside the military

The LATimes has a very interesting lead on the growing division within the military over troop levels in Iraq citing the resignation of Fallon as the flash point.

The short version is that the military in Washington see Petraeus' extensions as damaging the military with little real payoff so long as the Iraqi government continues to not produce. Well worth a read.
