General McChrystal Must Go and He Should Not Be Allowed to Resign

General McChrystal will be meeting with the president tomorrow, and after that meeting he should be the former leader of the troops fighting in Afghanistan.  He has got to go. He is not so invaluable that he can not be replaced. He does not hold some secret plan in his head that only he can implement. He has got to go and he should not be allowed to resign he should be fired. Throughout the day I heard pundits say he is so valuable that he simply can not be replaced. That’s insane if something happened to him rest assured the war would still rage on so he can be replaced. He disparaged his boss and the boss’ team and for that reason he can not be allowed to stay. You try talking about your boss to your subordinates or simply send an email describing your boss as an idiot and forward it to everyone in your company. By the end of the day security will be standing at your desk as you pack your box. This is that magnified by a million. This guy has shown total disrespect for the president and he has got to go. If the president allows him to stay after this then he is a wimp.

“Runaway General” McChrystal keeps his eyes on the “Wimps in the White House”

General Stanley McChrystal has been summoned to Washington to explain statements that he and his staff made to Rolling Stone magazine. In an article that will be on the newsstands on Friday McChrystal criticized the president and took pot shots at the Vice President. When asked about Vice president Biden one of his aides replied you mean “bite me”. McChrysal said that he voted for the president, but they have yet to really connect, and he said the president was woefully unprepared for their first meeting. The article also claims “McChrystal has seized control of the war “by never taking his eye off the real enemy: The wimps in the White House.” So this is the top commander in Afghanistan making disparaging remarks about the commander in chief. One of McChrystal’s aide used the term “wimps in the White House”, but their attitude reflects the attitude of their leader, and if that’s the case McChrystal’s got to go. This is something that does not have to go on. You can’t talk about your boss and his team like this and expect to keep your job, and McChrystal should not be surprised if he loses his.
