DON'T FEEL TOO SORRY FOR McCHRYSTAL
He only has himself to blame. Stanley McChrystal thought sucking up to Barack Hussein Obama would help him, but when all was said and done, it was the general's "poor judgment" that did him in. Hanging out with a known leftist reporter for "sex, drugs and rock and roll" magazine ROLLING STONE is not just stupid, it was suicide.
Harry Truman, an artillery captain in World War I, knew what to do. The man from Independence. Mo., one of our greatest presidents ever, did lots of unpopular things - like order the A-bomb dropped on Japan. That saved countless lives. He didn't let the Communists overrun South Korea. He even fired a popular general for insubordination.
TROOPS NOT GRIEVING McCHRYSTAL'S DEPARTURE
McChrystal was not exactly loved by the troops, despite his well-publicized by the media visits to the field. One of his rules of engagement, knocking on a door before kicking it down, cost American lives. It may help win the "hearts and minds" of the local people, but where have we heard that phrase before? Oh, yeah. Right. In Vietnam. And we all know how that turned out.
