    This may be precisely what Obama wants and has set up ... With a McChrystal resignation (justifiable), Obama will bring into question the loyalty and dependability of his senior military leaders, and that of the Force as a whole. It will provide cover for him to build his Brown Shirts ... his dependable and loyal forces ... more rapidly.

    He does not, and has not ever, given two shits about A'stan. That was Bush's war. His pro-Muslim / anti-American world view would never let him pursue a true victory in A'stan, and he's said as much

    Sort of brings back history (Germany and Hitler) when you have a President talking about building a civilian armed force that is equal in stature of the military. If we as a nation allow this we deserve anything and everything that Obama does to us. Is it just me or can't anybody else see that Obama is slowly but with determination destroying America?

    I guess he decided not to listen his generals after all. No surprise here.

    That was still my hope. Gone. Done. He is no friend of the military. I was still hoping he was.

    I wonder what the rest of the NATO command will have to say...if anything.

    No, he's never been. He won't even spend any time morale-boosting with injured soldiers unless there's a camera.

    Alli, there you go shooting yourself in the foot again with thoughtless comments. Evidence please for your conclusion.

    You're new around here ain't ya? Empty rhetoric is a Allie special....as it is with Willow...and Namvet...and Wicked Jester....and Concept...and Mal....and Liability...

    In fact I reckon if you invented some type of anti-frothing pill, you'd make a mint - on this board alone...
