1. Huge Mistake to Trust or Even Talk to Rolling Stone, they have never supported the US Military in any way shape or form. In fact, RS editorially celebrates American defeats and failures.
2. This is a bigger test for Obama than the 'smart guys in rectangle glasses' over at 1600 Penna Avenue realize. Obama's petulance will very likely result in an increase in American body count. More NATO ISAF soldiers will die because of Obama and his screaming harpies desire for R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
3. Politically Obama has only ever won elections by clearing the field. He is cleansing the field of battle.
4. The fact that Karzai supports SM is not a good thing. He is cutting side deals with the Taliban.
5. Obama is taking a harder line on his Astan Command Staff than he has on Hamas, BP, Hezbollah, Ahmedinejad or Mexican Cartels. The enemies this administration reside in Tel Aviv, London, Phoenix and NATO ISAF HQ
6. Obama has more to lose a relieved SM is free to speak the truth about the Barrio War Failure. Maybe Barrio ought to bring back Colin Powell from Mothballs. LOL
