    Are the Air Force guys resigning in protest of Iran plans? The AP story doesn't hint at that, but you see military guys resign before they give what they think are bad orders.

    No, these guys were just bad at their jobs. They fucked up on multiple occasions.

    That's the implication of the story and that very well may be the case, but that may not be the whole story.

    Then you have this...

    Seems like puzzle pieces are out there.

    I have no doubt that Bush wants to war with Iran, but the stories about these Air Force guys screwing up have been out there for months. I don't think they are resigning over policy disagreements.

    Thing is, with his approval rating in the sewer, he doesn't need to give a damn about public opinion. He and Cheney and the rest can just go on with it,
    and leave Obama with cleaning up the mess -- a microcosm of W's life. Of course, heaven knows who they think is going to fight it.

    Everytime somebody says we're attacking Iran, I say, "Us and what army?"

    That just reminded me of one of the 2004 debates, where John Kerry was ripping the Iraq war effort because we were carrying the entire load. Bush starts whining about how Kerry was inaccurate because there were all these other countries helping us.

    Kerry responded with the fact that the U.S. was shouldering 90 percent of the load. Bush just smirked.

    Actions without personal consequences . . . that's our boy, Fredo.

    The Brits pulled out and now the Aussies are pulling out. Most of the rest pulled out long ago.

    The Coalition of the Willing is now an Army of One.

    My favorite Coalition of the Willing story was Iceland.
    They had one soldier there. Yet Iceland kept getting thrown out there as this country that was giving all this support.

    Of all the Bushisms, "You forgot Poland" is an underrated favorite.
