    This discussion is really just academic. No court martial is likely going to be pursued because of political reasons, that much is obvious.

    No court martial would be indicated based on the facts either. His career is over, it's plenty. The good he did this country far outweighs the mistakes he has made.

    It's nice of you to say that and everything but why? So far I a haven't seen any real reason why "no court martial would be indicated." What is your basis for saying that? Sure, it wouldn't be smart for Obama, I grant that. I get that it's not going to happen, but it's because of politics. McChrystal's a bigwig, Obama doesn't have the political capital to waste going after him. But if Obama did go after McChrystal, no court martial would be able to find him innocent of an Article 88 violation, that much is clear. The good he did for this country doesn't mean he shouldn't be punished for his misdeeds. Benedict Arnold did a lot of good for this country too, does that mean he shouldn't have been punished? And before you jump on that Hellhound, no I'm not saying McChrystal's mistake was anywhere near as grave as Arnold's, but both should meet with justice.

    Well, the discussion's been over with you since you dodged the question about whether or not McChrystal was disrespectful. But just because you avoided painting yourself into a corner doesn't mean you won the debate. I'm still open to discuss it with you, though.

    Well, most people familiar with military law would be inclined to disagree with your that these statements are not serious enough for a court martial, specifically the United States Court of Military Appeals. US v. Howe was over a sign at a protest by a guy who was out of uniform and in a crowd. I wonder what they'd have to say about a General badmouthing a President in Rolling Stone.

    Many/most violations of the UCMJ are handled at the command level with NJP. Court Martials are relatively rare.

    What is it that the General specifically said about President Obama? For there to be a court martial, someone has to officially charge him with a crime.

    Why do you keep parading around "court martial?" Do you really think a General is going to be Court Martialed? It's not going to happen. It was never going to happen. Why are you so invested in this anyway?
