Obama Ousts Another General, This Time, The Head Of Central Command




Another general ousted, this time a Marine legend. It’s almost as if Obama wants to kick out those who might question.

quote:

Via WFB:

“Word on the national security street is that General James Mattis is being given the bum’s rush out of his job as commander of Central Command, and is being told to vacate his office several months earlier than planned,” reports veteran national security correspondent Thomas E. Ricks.

It now appears likely that Gen. Mattis, a Marine Corps legend, will leave his post as head of America’s most important combatant command in March, several months earlier than planned. Ricks continues:

“Why the hurry? Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way — not because he went all “mad dog,” which is his public image, and the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed the civilians so hard on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action against Iran. Some of those questions apparently were uncomfortable. Like, what do you do with Iran once the nuclear issue is resolved and it remains a foe? What do you do if Iran then develops conventional capabilities that could make it hazardous for U.S. Navy ships to operate in the Persian Gulf? He kept saying, “And then what?

So he favored a go-slow approach on Iran and was (allegedly) sacked?

The article made no sense, how was he too Hawkish if he was asking the tough questions to discourage an attack on Iran? Why would Obama fire him for asking the right questions.

I think the writer has very weak rational thinking abilities.

It looks like the old Petraus chain is being broken apart.

You are right about the article. I have heard rumblings about this guy for a while now. I deleted my comment because what I said was inappropriate and to defend what I said would be even more inappropriate.

These questions could be construed as Hawkish. My answer to the first question...

... would be to not GAF about Iran once the nuclear issue is resolved. It sounds like he could have been pushing for war even if the nuclear crisis isn't an issue.

Was he discouraging an attack on Iran, or looking for a larger scale attack? If the latter, then the Hawkish label may be correct.

He was walking them through the realities of what could happen.

Discouraging.

It sure looks like what WAS rumor is fact. Ambassadors thread was locked. Now that it is all coming out it sure looks like ambassadors tip was real.

LINK

Some of the stuff in the second link originates from Russia. Do we believe Russia or our propaganda?

I heard on CNN that the General said in a meeting of a bunch of Muslim leaders "don't F--- with me or we"ll kill you all." I like that patriotic tuffness, but someone informed Obama and the Gen. got fired. The pussification of America by liberal Democrats. The Muslims killed 4 people at Bengazi and several at the Algeria gas field, Americans.
