A time for the generals
American generals are starting to speak out against the continued war against Iraq. Well, retired generals are starting to speak out, but it is a sign of the times. Just about the only serving officer who thought that the invasion was insane was General Eric Shineski who was rewarded for his candour be early retirement. Thus expecting currently serving officer to put their careers on the line is a bit much, but the retired dissidents' list is fairly long.
It should be noted that most are only speaking out because the war is lost and they want to salvage something from the wreckage, but that in itself is good news for us. The imperialists are now fighting amongst themselves. First some of the NeoCons jumped ship. Then their cheerleaders started to abandon the cause. Now the generals are speaking out.
With every day that passes the warmongers get more and more isolated.
