Will CentCom Chief Adm Fallon be shown the door early?
Those wonderful folks over at Crooks and Liars have a great read up about CentCom Chief Adm. William Fallon. Fallon is one military mind that doesn’t mince words and most certainly doesn’t tow the Bushie line. How good is Admiral Fallon? Well, from the C&L writeup via a ThinkProgress article:
Defense Secretary Robert Gates has called CENTCOM commander Adm. William Fallon “one of the best strategic thinkers in uniform today.” Fallon opposed the “surge” in Iraq and has consistently battled the Bush administration to avoid a confrontation with Iran, calling officials’ war-mongering “not helpful.” Privately, he has vowed that an attack on Iran “will not happen on my watch.”
Seems Admiral Fallon might be relieved of his duty prematurely because he doesn’t tow the BushCo line. Esquire Magazine has an online writeup about Adm Fallon and the possibility of him being shit-canned before his term is up. The reason? Glad you asked…
Iran and the possibility of military action.
Jesus H. Christ..this administration is determined to fuck us all before their time in office ends. By “all” I mean the entire world, because going after Iran would disrupt the oil supply not to mention cause a whole lotta problems since the world opinion is that we pretty much suck when it comes to attacking and invading sovereign nations without one ounce of provocation.
