No matter what the fan club does to him, he's served his purpose.
...In an article in Rolling Stone magazine, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal and his aides spoke critically of nearly every member of the president’s national security team, saying President Obama appeared “uncomfortable and intimidated” during his first White House meeting with the general, and dismissing Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. as “Bite Me.”
Now, while I'm sure Biden, the former DINOcratic $enator from MBNA, would be more than happy to Bite Him, the One seems to be a little more circumspect about snapping at this highly polished brass bait.
The fishers being the Company factors that support Petraeus Caesar for Prez. After all, McChrystal is a good Centurion for his Caesar first and foremost, and the One is in the perfect position to realize this. Why look how successful his efforts have been in Afghanistan [tip o'teh tinfoil to Ian Welsh].
The idiots in Washington think its been a failure. Just what do the Villagers know about the real motivations behind the War on Terra? What will they let themselves know? Like this is an accident.
McChrystal is smart and evil enough to realize that victory isn't measured in such a crude manner as winning the war on Terra. Victory is the Struggle itself, where the warrior elite endlessly rule in endless war. The bank$ters who profit tidily concur. They think it's easier to own an Empire than a Republic.
Obama had better not let McChrystal commit 腹切り his way. Best to sever the head from the body, lest this zombie or his master rise and run in 2012.
