    Should we wait for a crime or just pick a few randomly?  I suppose we could just ask all the 3 Stars for their black books of rapist since you think they all keep a list and are waiting to "reign terror."

    •  wait till the next rape occurs (0+ / 0-)

      then cashier the relevant MAJCOM commander for
      failing to supervise personnel.

      That will send a message to the flags of how bad this is,
      and they will put the heat on.

        but I have no doubt you are serious.

        I assume you would have exempted General Dunwoody when she was the AMC Commander.  And I supposed LTG Brooks would be exempt now as another non-white male since the problem is white males.

        I also assume we are going to fire the Secretary of Education the next time anyone in the department commits a crime.  And we are going to fire the Postmaster General the next time someone "goes Postal."

          if you need to make an example, you make an example.

          if you want to make sure it's not personal, invite the
          scapegoat to the white house, have lunch then ask for
          their resignation.

          i'm not sure why you think it's so hard to bust a flag officer.

          the USAF Chief of staff was cashiered over a bent spear incident.

          •  Ummm, I can't see where that was said. (0+ / 0-)

            Nowhere did the person say it was "too hard to bust one" - the point actually being made was that just "busting a flag officer" over it was so broad as to be meaningless. That was the point being made, not that it was "too hard".

            I see a pattern here.

            Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick: The "party of Jesus" wouldn't invite him to their convention - fearing his "platform."
