No amount of troops

Speaking of a new candor, the Adm. Michael G. Mullen, the Bush administration's nominee to be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told a Senate committee that "no amount of troops in no amount of time will make much of a difference," if the Iraqis don't stand up.

Given the repeated (and repeated) reports of the unwillingness or inability of Iraqis to form the kind of consensus necessary to a building a nation, that kind of says it all.

OK, guys, strike the set.
