It's bound to get a whole lot worse, boys and girls.

Fallon was the subject of an article published last week in Esquire magazine that portrayed him as opposed to President Bush's Iran policy. It described Fallon as a lone voice against taking military action to stop the Iranian nuclear program.

Some points to ponder in all this:

Who realizes that Gen. Petraeus is actually his subordinate?

Speak out in this current climate and suffer the wrath of Cheney.

He'll be OK in retirement. Do the math for his retirement pay..

It wasn't a forced retirement. Yeah.

Wait for the book.

Wait for him to get on with Obama. Prolly has a bumper sticker. Damn hippies. Who does he think he is? Dictating military tactics after only 40 years in service. Cheney didnt even serve, and he can direct campaigns and run theater level engagements. He knows all...

Nothing like the disrespect shown upper management types of the military by those who "had better things to do" other than serve in the military in their generations conflicts.
