Admiral Fallon Resigns

Admiral James Fallon was the commander of CENTCOM, the central US military command. His resignation comes in large part because of an article in Esquire. From the NY Times piece: "Officials said the last straw, however, came in an article in Esquire magazine by Thomas P.M. Barnett, a respected military analyst, that profiled Admiral Fallon under the headline, “The Man Between War and Peace.” The article highlighted comments Admiral Fallon made to the Arab television station Al Jazeera last fall, in which he said that a “constant drumbeat of conflict” from Washington that was directed at Iran and Iraq was “not helpful and not useful. I expect that there will be no war, and that is what we ought to be working for. We ought to try to do our utmost to create different conditions.” (...)"

George W. Bush wants to start a war with Iran. Even though we have no army to invade with, and no plan, and the complete fucking stupidity of starting yet another war, in an already unstable Middle East, while we're already occupying a hostile country next door.

John McCain is all for bombing and or invading Iran too. That's one of the biggest reasons he's not fit to serve as President of the United States.
