Zero’s getting ready to bail on AStan and doesn’t care about whether the military gets along with his new stooge or not.
We can all feel secure tonight.
Not a good time for Active Duty to re-up.
It’s going to get stinky in the bunker. Only good friends will be able to live together in the ever decreasing safe places to go.
Sec. Gates had some very scathing comments about this character in Woodward’s new book. How embarrassing that our flop of a President chooses this fellow traveler to replace a Marine.
The President/Congress get to screw top military men if they feel like it. To retire above O-8 you need congressional approval, no matter of you are currently an O-9 or O-10.
