I really don't care if McChrystal took public shots at Obama. Really when McChrystal provided the Obama administration with the means to justify the current war misadventure, both became the biggest losers. It was a defining moment for the Obama administration to actually get in front of the war and lead the way out...instead they brought the magic bullets offered by old war generals. Obama said today the McChrystal showed 'poor judgement'...well, that sword cuts both ways.
The current policy of counterinsurgency (COIN) is nothing more than backing one corrupt war lord over others for favors granted. There is no chance of 'victory' or 'democracy'. There is only the continuence of death that reinforces the Afghanistan's hate of America (yes America and not Americans, there is a difference!). Unfortunately, Obama fired the General when he should have fired the war effort.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
