McChrystal, Media Bias, Outrage

Before we start we think McChrystal should resign or be fired. The Commander and Chief cannot have insubordination in the field from his highest-ranking general in the theatre. We also think this was more a suicide then a revolt. General McChrystal knows he did not get enough troops, he knows the cut of date approaches, and the administration was going to blame him for why Afghanistan is no better today than nine years ago. The media is so over the top on this one when General Wesley Clark jumped on President Bush over Iraq policy he was a media darling, truth to power they said. When it is their messiah getting the shaft, they call for swift punishment and immediate removal. Clark was not in the field but the comments are the same. We think this is a suicide because what General even talks to Rolling Stone magazine. Speaking of that, when was the last time anyone mentioned Rolling Stone and being relevant? The truth is the General and his staff did not say anything every military person in the filed or stateside will tell you. The rules of engagement in Afghanistan are murky and it is a no win.
