General David Petraeus
Just a quote, nothing more:

(talking about what makes a successfull army officer//leader)

"It's the hard work of drinking tea with the locals, delivering air conditioners to the mosques, meeting with the neighborhood clerics, getting to know the imams, and all the rest of that," he says. "You gotta build institutions, not just units." - General David Petraeus.

I found you via FIONA's place.
This old liberal grandma from Texas is most honored to meet you.
Keep fighting for change. Keep fighting for peace.
You have friends.
Even in Texas.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David
