Reports indicate that Marine General James Mattis is being forced out of CENTCOM for questioning certain aspects of the Obama administration's Middle East policy.
In particular, it appears his questions surrounding the U.S. response to Iran's nuclear ambitions drew the ire of civilian military and security advisers.
These civilians were apparently upset by the way Mattis pushed them to "consider second and third-order consequences of military action against Iran." Nor did they appreciate the way he pushed them to think long term and consider what the U.S. will do if Iran develops non-nuclear weapons that can be used to keep U.S. ships out of the Persian Gulf.

Do we know any more about these men?
Wonder if the new General’s a ‘yes’ man.
Mad Dog stands in the way of Os agenda to disarm and silence the people, O knows Marines will follow Mattis and not Os orders.
We need Mattis in our posse!
I was watching Braveheart on TV tonight and I will leave you with a quote that I thought fitting-
men dont follow titles, they follow courage
John Kerry anyone!?
