When a man is ready to retire and decides to go out in a way that will make a difference to his mission, I have to respect that. General Mcchrystal most likely saved many American Soldier and Marine lives. I am sure the new general would not take the job, unless he could change those stupid rules of engagement. So for that the country owes the man a debt of gratitude and he has mine.
But the sad part is what will happen to his staff for their part in the enlightenment of us all. Those men threw away their careers for us all. I don't know their names but they are even more heroic than the general. He was ready to go out, they just gave up their lives to save future soldiers. Thank you Gentlemen.
