Unsurprisingly, McChrystal has been replaced by the fainting prone general “Microphone Up My Nose Petraeus.” The war in Afghanistan is a total wash as it was meant to be or put another way, war is its own justification. However if you change generals it gives the rubes back home a sense that Dear Leader is serious about bringing Afghanistan to some kind of conclusion when the real plan is to keep the wars blowing along at a good clip. There so much money to make on war that we just hate to turn that darned spigot off. It also gives Obama the chance to appear lordly and leader-like which is fairly important when even the mainstream news media wonders what is wrong with Obama and suggests that he is perhaps spineless. In fact, the timing of McChrystal’s crude remarks on the Obama administration couldn’t have been more perfect.

Obama tells us himself that war is more important than any one man.


"War is bigger than any one man or woman, whether a private, a general or a president," Obama said. "

Oh dear, Obama actually spoke the truth, must have been a gaff. Obama tells us right out that next to war, people (That’s you and me) are relegated to a secondary position. Reading between the lines Obama is also telling us we will never leave Afghanistan as long as he is president. The ruling class cheers.
