  •  When the General (0+ / 0-)

    is speaking in the capacity of the armed forces, he is required to wear his uniform.
    His MSM appearances are part of that.
    He is discussing, in his capacity as the commander, what is happening in Iraq. Therefore he is required to wear his uniform.

      on a zillion media venues.

      •  He believes (0+ / 0-)

        he is making progress.
        As the commander over there he would like more time to succeed.
        That is why he is on the shows.
        Do you feel he should not take his case to the American people via the MSM?
        Why shouldn't he?
        Your continued use of "whore" is insulting btw.

        •  Yeah, and Bush is a "good Christian man." (0+ / 0-)

          It is NOT for Petraeus, or any active military person, to take his case to the American people, because Petraeus is not any sort of elected representative.

        •  Huh (0+ / 0-)
          He believes he is making progress.

          He's deluding himself. Both the Pentagon and the GAO say so. In particular, the entire purpose for the escalation was to make political progress in Iraq. We have actually seen political regress.

          As the commander over there he would like more time to succeed.

          I'm sure he would. He doesn't deserve it. Our troops deserve to come home.

          Do you feel he should not take his case to the American people via the MSM? Why shouldn't he?

          He should feel free to do so. And it's my responsibility to smack the shit out of him every step of the way.

          Your continued use of "whore" is insulting btw.

          Quite right. The diarist owes whores everywhere an apology.
