Without a clear goal the Afghan war has dragged on. General Stanley McChrystal may have been "Afghanistan's last hope". Ask anyone who has been there in the last year and they will tell you it's a mess. The only thing working was McChrystal and the only play book belongs to the general.
Suddenly its half time and the team owner wants to change coaches. Brilliant move Mr. President.
If you read the story "Runaway General" you will find nothing but banter between staff. There is nothing profound or treasonous, and if a bunch of suits in Washington want to make a big deal out of some comments made over a couple of beers, well let them spend a year in the frigging shit hole country.
If Obama fires McChrystal and Cedar Posts suspects he will, then we might as well pull out tomorrow. McChrystal on the other hand will offer to resign and who would blame him, but he won't quit its not in his DNA. The President on the other hand well we can just call him President Dangerfield as he gets no respect.
