Maybe to you General, but not with your boss.
Well I agree with you General, but if you really, REALLY, believed that you’d correct your boss’ Israel hatred post haste. One terrific way to do this would be to put the usurper in chief into the media spotlight by demanding he prove his eligibility before you or any of the other joint chiefs obey anymore orders.
That is a great idea. Unfortunately, we have too many enemies to want to put our country at risk by encouraging these cases in our military. They have important jobs to do - let the civilians work on impeachment. Think orange jumpsuit to perp walk to supermax. Obama deserves our best efforts in this endeavor. Yes we can!!!!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Nonsense, General. Haven't read the thread yet, but if anyone blames Petraeus for this, they're mistaken. He's doing his job.
Sorry for the second ping. I should have noted that in a norman, functional administration, no General should feel it necessary to offer up his opinion on a topic like this. He’s a General, not a politician, he knows that, and Israel isn’t Centcom’s responsibility.
Until the war is won, there will be no peace.
