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!
