20. Wtf are you talking about?
Why do you capitalize "Combatant Commander?" Wtf is that? Petraeus is Centcom commander. Centcom is a major command. There is no such military title as "Combatant Commander."

Generals have been relieved throughout history for incompetence, disloyalty, and insubordination.

The criminal, profiteering Bush administration has promoted generals who will lie for them, i.e., generals who lack moral courgae and loyalty to the troops. Petraeus is one of those officers. The one-star general who briefed the press on the "fierce firefight" during the Jessica Lynch recovery is another. There is ample reason to relieve the gutless Petraeus and others like him. The reason would not be simply a change in administation. The reason would be replacing incompetent leaders with competent leaders.

Your opinions on Petraeus are just your opinions. Others have different opinions. McClellan was one of the most well-liked commanders the Army ever had. Thank God Lincoln had the good sense to replace his dumb ass.
