General McChrystal

Well what do you know, someone has spoken out against the Obama administration.  General McChrystal, the brains, and brawn, behind America’s offensive in Afghanistan, apparently let some comments slip about his less-than-friendly feelings toward President Obama and various Cabinet members, including Secretary of Defense Robert Gates windows 7 downloaden free.  The burning question behind all of this is, how much of a “slip” was it really, and what exactly is Obama going to do about it?

Those who have worked with General McChrystal know tact is not one of his strong suits (surprise!) herunterladen.  An unnamed military man who worked with the General noted a time when he took former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld “to task in front of all of us.”   He has also toed the line of insubordination in earlier instances, when a report pushing for more troops in Afghanistan after General McKiernan was reportedly fired for similar actions windows 7 with oem key.

This time, however, McChrystral hasn’t just stepped over the line fortnite ps3 for free.  He’s nuked it.  In a time where America’s authority, and the center of that authority, the executive branch, needs to assert itself (sorry, Israel), Obama can’t afford to let these comments go unpunished bau simulator 2015 download kostenlos.  The problem he faces, though, is that current conditions in Afghanistan make that an exceedingly difficult, possibly deadly, choice.

It doesn’t look good if, in his first year in office, Obama sacks two generals herunterladen.  It doesn’t look good if, at any time, Obama allows a subordinate to talk smack.  So, what is a President to do?  Well, it may have been a good idea to listen to his generals in the first place, given his lack of military and national security experience upon taking office pferde pc spiele kostenlos downloaden.  But that doesn’t do anyone any good now.  It may also have been a good idea to have followed his own original promises to increase troops in Afghanistan instagram apk.  But, again, that doesn’t do anyone any good now.  Obama now must choose between saving face, and what’s best for the troops and the campaign in Afghanistan apps lassen sich nicht herunterladen iphone.  No pressure.

Whatever he decides, Obama is going to have to pull out all the stops to justify it to an increasingly skeptical and dissatisfied public ls 15.  Good thing Howcast.com is around to save the day:
