Lou Dobbs is correct - fire the generals!

Lou Dobbs on Bill Maher stated that we spend all our time criticizing Bush but the ones who need criticizement are the Generals who aren't doing their jobs in Iraq to win victory.

There are no political restrictions as in Vietnam, there is no one holding them back, the entire failure in Iraq solely rests on the ineptitude of our own Generals - unless you're willing to believe it is "impossible to win" against insurgents when with good Generals the US was able to win WW2 against much greater odds.

These Generals have a lack of comprehensive strategy and goal-oriented tactics. They unleash random assaults - perform mundane and reutine police patrols rather than hunt and kill the enemy at all expense in open warfare.

Lou Dobbs hit the nail on the head - someone in the Pentagon needs to swing and I agree with him about the Secretary of Defense needing to be one of them - if they can't get their act together then we should find someone who can get the job done.

It's not the politcians who are to blame, at least not completely...

The generals who are supposedly our best and brightest military minds are sucking wind. Start firing some of them...an employer doesn't like the job I'm doing isn't going to keep me around, and I don't have the lives of people in my hands. Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Truman all fired generals and admirals for screwing up, Bush shouldn't be any different.

Not just the generals but Secdef. Rummy as well. Dobbs couldn't be more right, but then he's one of the few talking heads I agree with here lately.

I tend to agree with that assessment. As a matter of fact, Lou Dobbs is one of the few talking heads at CNN that I do agree with. I don't think, at least not completely, that you can lay the blame in the lap of a man that is 9000 miles away from the action. The generals seem to be more at fault for the Iraq quagmire than any politician could ever be.After all, they are there;they know what needs to be done and it's not getting done,folks.
