    The Generals are accountable and in service of their chain of command, the President (and by extension the electorate) and their perceived needs for national defense as exerts in such matters.

    The Republicans are accountable to their constituents who think locally, contractors who supply the cash for their SuperPACs and their base voters who would love nothing more than to nuke anyone not towing the current Thug Party Line.

    I'm usually anti-war but I trust the opinions of professional warmakers when it comes to what material they need to carry out their assignment of war-making over a bunch of draft dodging, rich white men who view elections as an annoyance hoisted on them by the riff-raff.
