  •  When I was in the Navy as a petty officer, or (3+ / 0-)

    even as a seaman recruit freezing my ass off in Great Lakes bootcamp in the middle of January, I would be in front of a summary Court Martial so fast, my lips wouldn't even get the words bite me out. 4 star generals are governed by the same articles of the Unified Code of Military Justice as the lowliest seaman recruit. No general is indispensible. McChrystal is obviously not someone who has instilled the esprit de corpe in his troops to be so successful so far. More soldiers are getting killed than ever and the violence has gone up. This is Obama's moment of truth. Peace or war. I think he realized being a wartime president ain't all it's cracked up to be.
