General McChrystal’s Upcoming Firing Reminiscent Of Truman Firing General Douglas MacArthur

It never ceases to amaze me how the Obama administration seems to be totally determined to fail at everything. Actually, I think the destruction of the United States into some state of the New World Order is the ultimate goal, so there may be a method to the madness, but the depth of the incompetence is staggering. It has to be more than a total lack of experience.

And now, we hear that General McChrystal, commander of forces in Afghanistan, apparently said, basically, that the administration is stupid and has no intention of letting the troops win the war in Afghanistan. Of course, he is right, because the administration never did intend to actually win the war, just like previous administrations never intended to win the Viet Nam War or the Korean War. And, for his candor, I suspect McChrystal will almost certainly be fired. There are some who say that a general should not speak out against his President; but, who is more qualified to call a fool a fool, and to point out the fact that he is not being allowed to do what has to be done to win the war. This is just like when Truman fired General Douglas MacArthur during the Korean War. MacArthur wanted to go ahead and finish the war, defeating the North Koreans (and the Chinese, who were only using North Korea as a proxy, just like Iran is currently using Hezbollah and Hamas as proxies). Truman insisted on a truce, essentially snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. And, of course, this stupidity has given us the current world situation, with North Korea having nuclear weapons and a lunatic-in-command who would not only use them, but who would (and probably has) sold them to other states such as Iran, and perhaps even to al Qaeda.

Yes, McChrystal should probably have kept the truth to himself and resigned. But, at least this may help to wake up the American people, who are far more concerned with, and interested in, American Idol and their favorite sports team than world events that will ultimately control their futures.
