CENTCOM Commander Admiral William Fallon resigned today.
Why this is bad news.
Well, from the beginning, tinfoil hat wearers like myself thought it was patently absurd that a NAVY MAN was brought in as ANYTHING dealing with Iraq. Always saw him being brought in as someone WHO WOULD BE OVER THE ATTACK ON IRAN, which would come FROM THE SEA, thus getting around that not-so-small problem of our ground troops BEING STRETCHED TO THE LIMIT.
According to those in the know - Fallon was known as a believer that the indefinite Iraq occupation was slowly wrecking the US military.
One of the things that has always scared me most about Shrub and The Evil One was them having 'nothing to lose'. I thought we had dodged a serious bullet with the NIE report coming out like that. It stopped their funnelling of lies and propaganda to the MSM.
But, with this resignation, I dunno. Did Fallon stand up for himself and refuse to take part in something he knows is going to be wrong for the country and the military?
Are the drumbeats of attack on Iran beginning all over again?
I don't know, but keep a lookout. They are insane enough to attack Iran.
