According to Michael Yon's latest dispatch called The Perfect Evil: Coming to Roost
The war is finally turning a positive corner here in Iraq. If Iraq continues to progress so rapidly, I will leave here in 2008, with plans to go to Afghanistan.
We should mull that one over a little. If Iraq is cleaning up rapidly and Al Qaeda there truly has no sanctuaries left, then what might need to happen? I think that, if Afghanistan is failing as he and others are reporting, then some more focus needs to go there. I'd point out that we can't cut out of Iraq to do that though. We need to make sure that Iraq continues to progress and are capable of keeping Al Qaeda out. If they can't get back into Iraq, then we go ass kicking big time in Afghanistan and Al Qaeda has huge problems.
