I am an old Viet Nam guy. I have been following the Afghanistan ROE issues.
The reality is that either we clean up the ROE or we must get out. We must make the choice now. McChrystal was right. Petraeus is wrong. This cannot be allowed to go on. If this takes military disobedience of the POTUS, so be it.
What you are watching, folks, is what is known as a “debacle”.
It’s disgraceful that not one single general I can think of has resigned over this and related issues-open gays, women in active combat, women wearing head scarves etc.
At least old COL David Hackworth had the integrity to resign and go public.
