You are daffy. McChrystal was a coward . He went outside the chain of command and ran to the press when Obama finally put a stop to his surge strategy that was as big a failure in Afghanistan as it was in Iraq. Obama's leadership in replacing a popular ,but flawed McChrystal with a more steady and competent General John R Allen was exactly like Lincoln bringing in Ulysses S Grant to win the war over the rebelling southern slave states. Grant knew how to take an order from a superior officer, President Lincoln and follow it like General John R Allen does . Obama Accelerates Transition of Security to Afghans<quoted text>
Hardly. McChrystal was a warrior, one of the few left in the military. He knew that Obama's strategy was sure to lead to failure and tried to prevent the kind of slaughter that our troops are currently the victim of in Afghanistan because of Obama's cowardly policies.
