    1. Get Rid of Petraeus and replace him with one of the Fired or
    forceably retired Generals. Not a difficult decision at all.

    5. Good solution.

    I'm ashamed that I don't recall the name of the last honcho who "retired" -- but he seemed to be a man of integrity.

    11. It would be a demotion for Shinseki to take over CENTCOM.

    Since he was Chairman of the JCS. IIRC

    But he would be a good man for the job.

    He might even be willing to come out of retirement to help us get out of this clusterf**k..

    10. Great idea.

    It would be nice to reward the generals who showed the moral courage to oppose this criminal regime.

    2. Boy, that's interesting. Never even thought of that.

    Although I think he's highly regarded on one hand, I think it's believed he's pretty much a political animal, too.

    Thanks babylonsister!

    3. This is simple

    If Petraeus will snap a salute and follow his commander-in-chief's orders without bitching and complaining, then go ahead and keep him. But if not, then he should be fired.

    It will be important to show the military who is boss. Bill Clinton never did that

    At least they didn't mention getting Clark out of retirement.....yet.:D

    I'm surprised that none of the DUmmies suggested Cindy Sheehan or Kook-cinich.

    DU thinks the most important thing is figuring how to lose to war on terror as quickly as possible.

    Of course when the ME goes up in a blaze of glory they'll blame everyone but themselves for it ( even thou they made all the decisions).
