    The man stepped on Obama's pride. Not that a scumbag in chief like Obama is entitled to any but the general should have known better.

    The boy ruined his career in a fit of temper. How unprofessional.

    He's a blip in history, insignificant and no matter what his accomplishments, he will be remembered as the drunk frat boy who gave a Rolling Stone reporter his 15 minutes of fame.

    What a dummie. :lol:

    yeah well, so how many generals does this make in the last 10 years anyhow?

    seems they're all handed this fairy tale mission outta some John Wayne script, and are suppose to shut up and just smile and nod at Congress

    maybe what we're seeing is the no-win senario many of us painted this perpetual propaganda machine foisting it's idiocy on the public come to fruition eh?

    it's really Nixon's legacy , in a roundabout way. Tricky Dick was under siege with the draft, he wanted the volly army because it displaced the public from the frolicing foriegn affairs the pentagon pursued

    no draft, no way to b*tch about it

    but the thing about it is, this phenomenon took the public's heart outta the fight

    of course i could be wrong, all those yellow ribbons might indeed bring our boys home for xmas eh?
