Pentagon politics

It's bad civilian policy to give the vast Pentagon bureaucracy the scope of influence to hamstring decisions that the President makes. Absolutely, the military should have input, but if the brass drags their heels on Iraq, that's a good reason to retire them and bring up a corps less tainted by the bullshit of Bushism.

Sometimes, you just have to order the generals to get it done or get out.
