Response to arely staircase (Original post)

14. We have heard the crap for so long about letting the Generals decide what is best...

How many times have we heard people like John McCain say that we should trust the judgement of the generals on the ground? If the military says we need to do something, then we should be listening to the military. We have heard that consistently for the last 12 years. The executive branch abrogated its responsibilities to the military in many instances. It was a terrible precedent.
