General Sanchez doesn't "get it"
According to General Sanchez, suggests that because a lot of the resistance is organized/controlled/funded by local elements, the capture of Saddam (Job #1 in Iraq, according to me)may not end them. Apparently, Gen. Sanchez doesn't get it. Saddam is Iraq, Iraq is Saddam. I mean, of course ALL violence won't end the day he is captured... but until the precise moment when everyone in Iraq knows he is gone FOREVER (dead or humiliated), they will fear his return. They know how US politics might work, that a change in President means a change in policy. Just look at how elections changed the Afghans fortunes.... in the 1800s.
