Keep Them In Their Place

There are reports that officers in the military are preparing to mount a public relations campaign to pressure Obama into staying in Iraq. Uh, hello? When did they stop teaching about civilian control of the military in officer training school? This is what happens when you have 8 years of a "President" claiming that he does whatever generals tell him to do. Even if it wasn't true (and I don't think it was), it gives generals funny ideas. Generals with funny ideas are very dangerous things.

  • You forgot to mention Dr. Strangelove, I seem to recall a zany general in that as well... But I could be wrong, its been a while since I saw that.

  • Ha! I was just about to say that I thought the link about dangerous generals would go to a Dr. Strangelove page. Don't forget about our precious bodily fluids!
