Why I reverted your edit to David Petraeus
Thanks for your edit. The reason why I reverted it is that, on careful thought, it seems to me that most English-speaking readers would understand his origin in the Netherlands, but would not see a relevant distinction between the country and the specific province of Friesland. If you want, changing to "Friesland, Netherlands" would be acceptable to me. The main consideration for me is that many or perhaps even most native English speakers would not recognise Friesland easily in reading, but the Netherlands is well known as a country. --TS 01:34, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
