I do not want to criticize while my soldiers are still bleeding and dying in Iraq.
Shinseki quotes
General Keane is, as is General Shinseki, they're outstanding Army officers. There's just no question about it. And they say what they believe, and they tell the truth. And they're honorable people and talented people.
Shinseki
If you dislike change, you're going to dislike irrelevance even more.




Shinseki Eric quotes
You must love those you lead before you can be an effective leader. You can certainly command without that sense of commitment, but you cannot lead without it.
Shinseki Eric
I would say that what's been mobilized to this point something on the order of several hundred thousand soldiers are probably, you know, a figure that would be required. We're talking about post-hostilities control over a piece of geography that's fairly significant, with the kinds of ethnic tensions that could lead to other problems. And so it takes a significant ground- force presence to maintain a safe and secure environment, to ensure that people are fed, that water is distributed, all the normal responsibilities that go along with administering a situation like this.
