    it's hard to believe that the general and all of his accomplishments, training and wherewithall, just got fired by a guy who has none... only in america.... i cannot reveal my source, only to say that the president had seriously considered one more admonishment, and rising above the situation to keep him on, with a slight change of assign duties. that rolling stone is just a magazine and an american institution, after all it's not like he was on the cover. the rumors that the general went from the whitehouse straight to a bar, are simply not true. rolling stone could not be reached for comment, because the west coast is three hours behind, and anyway they don't get up (exist) before noon. they are however, enjoying the biggest boost in sales since the rock group "stillwater" graced the cover s.e. addendum there obvious clues were that gibbs said yesterday how pissed off the president was. and with obama's giant ego, there is no way he would "let him get away with it". mcchrystal wouln't have stayed even if the prez would have refused his resignation. and by the way, this will be the kind of issue (story) that hillary will use to break with the obamaa policy and administration, and declare her candidacy for president.

    The general deserves to be gone. He doesn't respect obie wan and I can relate to that. but he needed to have kept it under his hat til he was a civillian again. Obie will find it a hard task to find a general who does respect him. You don't give respect don't expect it to be handed to you. That's why Arlington and ceremony matter. It's all a cumulative effect.

    Have you observed obie wan as he addressed the troops? Ever observed their reactions? It's quite telling.
