    Just another coincidence of a senior ranking officer retiring early after he voices disagreement with the real CIC. Right, right, Bush knows best even though he never left the skies of Alabama.:eusa_whistle:

    I deployed on Ike with Fox Fallon. He is a straight shooter... and a damned fine B/N.

    he would undoubtedly have been the odd man out in any sort of Bush inner circle of sycophants.

    Deja Vu

    But we know he listens to his commanders. At least the ones who agree with him.

    Figures you two would ignore what the story says to play your little bullshit games. That is probably why neither of you made it pasted Light Bird status.

    I wonder who we should believe?

    The alleged retired gunny sarge who was clueless about US military deployment in the balkans; who didn't know you needed a congressional nomination to attend a service academy; and who thought the Iraq war was a great idea?

    Or, General David Grange?

    personal insults from retired enlisted personnel who KNOW they would have gone to mast for saying them while still in uniform are always fun to read. :rofl:

    Have you READ the Esquire article RGS, or are you going to dismiss it with one of your negative critiques when you don't even fucking know what it says?

    I know what the Admiral said, I do not need to read what some reporter thinks he REALLY means.

    As for DCD, what a moron. He doesn't even know what we are talking about and his own quote plainly states the General he quoted doesn't even know the Admiral.

    Once again, get back to me when we ACTUALLY attack Iran. Something you people have been claiming we would do for years now. Something so unlikely to occur as to be ridiculous to claim. The democrats control Congress, explain again WHY they would support an attack on Iran?

    And this is your whole problem. You think your still an Officer and can dictate to me what to say on this board.

    By the way retard, you do not just need a nomination from a Congress member to go to the academies. But then if you had a clue you would know that.

    By the way the Iraq war was justified and still is justified. Was it a good idea? I do not know and it does not matter. We did it and can not just take our ball and go home.

    And your the retard on the Balkans. But thanks for playing dumbshit.

    I AM still an officer....my ID card says so. But I don't think I can dictate your speech whatsoever.. You can say whatever you want. I am certainly free to laugh at it.

    When will you read the article so that you can discuss Fox Fallon's resignation with any degree of knowledge?

    I'll wait...but until you do, keep insulting my rank.... it is so predictable.
