Another Reason to Stop the Occupation

Reva sent this:

For those hesitant about bringing back our troops from Iraq, there is the following item in the March 17, 2008 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology. Published by McGraw-Hill, it has full-page ads from Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, Rockwell Collins, etc.; that is, it is a mainline aerospace technology magazine.

On page 27, we have (with emphasis added):

“Adm. William Fallon’s resignation as chief of Central Command is portrayed as being prompted by the public — but minor — disagreements with the White House over the war in Iraq.  But the differences were actually fundamental.  A senior Air Force general says Fallon was ‘siding with the Joint Staff, in particular the Army and Marines, in urging the President to get out of Iraq faster because it’s undermining the U.S. military. … Top Army and Marine Corps leaders know the military is not designed to carry on a long-term war.  It’s tearing itself apart and quality is dropping fast.'”
