Listening to a General on the Ground

OK... it's Wesley Clarke, who's retired, so I guess he's not "On the ground," as in eating lobster in the Green Zone and serving plastic turkeys at the... Is it GeeDubShrub Airport yet? But his feet are on earth and his head is out of both the clouds and his ass, so I can listen to what he says without getting drunk first.

Seems like he supports Webb's idea that troops should be able to come home and get some rest between turns in the shooting gallery. Dweeb -- Chris Matthews guest, not Matthews hissef -- says this will be a problem... will interfere with rotations... with unit cohesion... with accomplishing the mission... with flexibility ... ... of some shit or other that some asshole thinks they need. Oh fuck oh dear it'll demoralize the troops because of the civilian interference. Embolden the enemy.

Webb's wish ain't gonna come to pass. Wish I could say I was surprised.
