Staying in Iraq Forever, Continued

For President Bush, loyalty is everything. No one has learned this lesson better than the military brass. Just ask Adm. William Fallon, the former head of U.S. Central Command, who resigned was fired after making some public statements indicating his disagreement with the Bush policy in regards to Iraq and Iran.

His replacement? None other than Gen. David Petraeus, who will be able to bring the same brilliant leadership that gave us the clusterfuck marketed as 'the surge' to U.S. foreign policy all over the Middle East. On the plus side, Petraeus will be answering to a new President in 9 months, one who will (hopefully) not share his views on an unending occupation strategy.
