Quotes of David Howell Petraeus

бывший глава ЦРУ

  • ⋅The Germans have done wonderful work. Not long ago, a German battle group battalion conducted a very impressive counterinsurgency operation in a portion of Baghlan province. I think these are the first counterinsurgency operations conducted by any German element after World War II. And they did a very impressive job. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅The fact is that Iran doesn't want to see the Taliban come back any more than do most Afghan citizens. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅This is actually true of the overall fight against al-Qaeda and trans-national extremists, that as you put pressure on them in one location, they'll seek safe haven sanctuaries in other areas. So you do have to continue to pursue them. But they have less capability. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅Reconciliation is what takes place, of course, at higher levels. President Karzai has been very clear about the red lines for reconciliation, accept the constitution, lay down their weapons, cut their ties with al Qaeda and essentially become productive or at least participating members of society in that regard. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅If you look at casualties, you find countries that had much higher loss rates per capita than the US. Denmark comes to mind, the United Kingdom, they have suffered heavy losses at various points, the Germans as well. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅Every civilian's death diminishes us, collectively. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅The art of coalition command - whether it is here in Afghanistan, whether it was in Iraq or in Bosnia or in Haiti - is to take the resources you are provided with, understand what the strengths and weaknesses are and to employ them to the best overall effect. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅People often ask, why aren't you reading about what it is you're working on right now? And the truth is, you only get three pages a night before your eyelids close. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅I think no commander ever is going to come out and say, 'I'm confident that we can do this.' /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅The president and I sat down in the Oval Office, and he expressed very clearly that what he wants from me is my best professional military advice. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅President Obama has said that our aspirations should be realistic. We are not going to turn one of the poorest countries in the world, that was plunged into 30 years of war, into an advanced, industrialized, Western-style democracy. What we want to achieve is Afghanistan's capacity to secure and govern itself. /David Howell Petraeus
  • ⋅If you don't want to have to kill or capture every bad guy in the country, you have to reintegrate those who are willing to be reconciled and become part of the solution instead of a continued part of the problem. And then, above all, the resources. /David Howell Petraeus

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
