    Don't buy into this President's Peacock strut on this one. It's all show. He can't fire McChrystal and he knows it. McChrystal is not only the best man for the job but he also knows too much. If he's fired he will then be free to openly & publicly discuss this Administration's shocking incompetence. They're not going to allow that to happen. It's all just a Peacock strut in the end. McChrystal will come out of this just fine. That's my prediction. You heard it here first.

    I would actually call McChrystal a Whistle Blower Hero. That's my opinion anyway.

    Little quick on the Move trigger no? I'm a little disappointed with this decision to move this post. :(

    i did not make this move, another mod could have, but DO NOT question a Mod's action on the board! send a pm or report the post, if you have concerns! care

    I've been thinking the same thing.
    It;s one thing to (quit) retire.
    But to be fired, wouldn't he have to go through Court Marshall proceedings?

    Any General over the rank of 2 stars service at the Presidents pleasure. 2 Star is the last permanent rank all 3 and 4 stars are billet specific.

    If there's nothing that can be done to him, why would he apologize? We'll see what happens and leave the spin to the hate squad which McChrystal is obviously a part of.

    The Community Organizer will end up bowing to the great & honorable General in the end. He wont fire McChrystal. The man is too valuable and even the Community Organizer understands this. We'll see though.

    I'm betting on a whole lot of bluster but no firing. McChrystal knows too much. He could make so much more trouble for this Administration. The Community Organizer will back down to the General in the end.
