Pace Fired Because He Balked at Iran

This isn't good news.


I've been writing for over a year now that the Joint Chiefs have been blocking the White House's efforts to expand the war to Iran. No matter what you might think of Gen. Pete Pace, this really is TERRIFYING news, unless you crave a wider war in the Persian Gulf and South Asia.

Pace has been the most visible symbol of the push-back within the military against the Long War.

More below. Doesn't sound good.

If this is true, and it sounds plausible given the track record of this administration regarding loyalty v. reality, I partially apologize to Gen. Pace for my comments in my previous post. He may have grown back some sack. Not in time. Too little, too late.
