A career warrior General, graduate of West Point, leader of men in battle, and a product of the Honor Code, was replaced today as leader of Free World Forces in Afghanistan by a Community Organizer, and a career politician with hair transplants suffering from Tourette Syndrome.
Stan McCrystal turned in his resignation after reports surfaced in an underground West Coast newspaper that his staff didn't think too highly of Hussein Obama's military strategy for overcoming taliban resistance in Afghanistan and even less of VP Joe 'Bite Me' Biden.
Obama war policy has been micro managed by of all people VP Joe Biden who thinks ObamaCare is a 'Big F******g Deal," and feels he can manage 'this little war' better than career military officers. His faction includes politically appointed ambassadors, and a few anti war congressional members who fly into to Kabul for 10 minutes and offer suggestions before flying home to give CNBC interviews. Military insiders say McCrystal finally had enough.
Known as a fierce commander beloved by his men, he has recently been hampered by White House Rules of Engagement drawn up over dinner by Michelle Obama and his two daughters.
Michelle even proposed a medal for soldiers in combat who don't fire their weapon, called the "Order of Merit for Remarkable Restraint While Under Hostile Fire and Threat of Death by Religious Fanatics." The US Mint has been commissioned to strike the medal with Obama's image on one side, and a tethered Kenyan sacrificial goat on the other.
Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said ' all replacement possibilities are on the table" in a response to rumours that Israeli ballet dancer and profane Obama Aide Rahm Emanuel was set to take over day to day combat operations in Afghanistan from his White House office using FaceBook, Twitter, and Skype.
Meanwhile in Kabul, President Karzai is entertaining a diplomatic group from China who seem to be willing to sign an exclusive mining agreement with the government to begin processing what is said to be trillions of dollars of valuable untapped minerals and natural resources.
According to a source close to the situation, in exchange China as offered to bring in 100,000 armed soldiers, 45 battalions of T-34 Tanks, and 55,000 'shock troops' to drive all terrorists back into Pakistan....in less than 3 weeks!
The Chinese promised that their Rules of Engagement will be simple...anyone shooting at them, or planting mines, will be summarily executed with no right of appeal as they have little interest in building a country club with amenities to house prisoners until they figure out what to do with them.
