The L word

Though, I suppose, strictly speaking, there are two of them.

You may decide for yourselves which one you think is more accurate.

Colin Powell, as reported at today's New York Times:
“We are losing — we haven’t lost — and this is the time, now, to start to put in place the kinds of strategies that will turn this situation around,” General Powell said on the CBS News program “Face the Nation.”
Though, precisely what those kinds of strategies would be remains anyone's guess.

General Powell was deeply skeptical about proposals to increase troop levels in Iraq, an idea that appears to have gained ground as President Bush reconsiders the United States’ strategy there.

“There really are no additional troops” to send, General Powell said, adding that he agreed with those who say that the United States Army is “about broken.”


That doesn't sound promising.
