Meet the New Military Commander in Iraq

Captain Ed introduces General David Petraeus. Interesting last name--I haven't done the etymology but would guess that it means "rock". We need a rock in Iraq. His strength is counter-insurgency.

I have no idea of the true origins of his name (wikipedia says his family is dutch), but in latin, it would literally mean "made of shaped rock"
