    Nothing will probably happen until Wednesday, after Obama leaves his boot prints all over that arrogant ass's fatigues.

    What surprises me about this affair is the speed with which Obama made his decision.

    Which leads me to suppose that being insulted is something he gets real uptight on.

    However he did IMO make the right decision, McChrystal had to go.

    It was my understanding that he was called to resign after comments he made openly criticizing the President's attention to resources in the war. If that's true, you bring that to your CinC, not to the media. Maybe he forgot that even though he is in charge of Afghanistan, he still has a superior. When he spoke out, it was insubordinate and cast negative press on the operation in Afghanistan.

    You always hear about people saying we shouldn't demoralize the troops by spitting on their efforts. Well, how does it look to the rest of the world when a top general is feeding stories to the media about an inept President? It doesn't really speak to unit cohesion.

    I don't care if it's Obama or Bush in charge, it was just unprofessional and out of line. He deserved to be fired and replaced with someone more loyal.
