CentCom Commander Resigns


Adm. William Fallon is stepping down as head of the U.S. Central Command, which oversees military matters in the Middle East, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced Tuesday.

Gates described as “ridiculous” any notion that Fallon’s departure signals the United States is planning to go to war with Iran.

This report will be updated as information becomes available.

Look for the update to start with, "Strategic operations against Iran have commenced..."

Note to you star-studded Flags out there: If you really take the defense of the United States seriously, when Cheney the Chimp tells you to attack Iran, tell him to stuff it.

Better yet, clap 'em both in irons and send 'em to some lovely tropic isle.

Note to Congress: If such a wondrous thing as B&C's arrest and rendition take place, don't make waterboarding any more illegal than it already is just yet. There's a lot we want to know from those two.

Probably won't even need to waterboard 'em. We can probably get those two chickenhawks to sing like little birdies by takin' 'em into a room with a bathtub and turning on a faucet. Withhold the toilet tiss-yoo and let 'em stew in their own, er, juice for a while as well.
