Pentagon Revolt Coming?
The Sunday London Times had a fascinating piece on the mood inside the Pentagon among senior military officers facing a potential conflict with Iran. In brief, the article quotes officials close to British Intelligence that "4 or 5" generals and admirals are poised to resign if the Bush Assministration starts a war with Iran. Many of the most senior military officers are increasingly horrified about the drift toward war, acknowledging that the U.S. is ill-prepared to take on Iran, with our forces stretched to the breaking point in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, try telling the Bush/Cheney regime; they are hell bent on conflict with Iran, despite the terrible consequences for our armed forces, the people in the region, and the war on terror.
