SOME of America’s most senior military commanders are prepared to resign if the White House orders a military strike against Iran, according to highly placed defence and intelligence sources.
Tension in the Gulf region has raised fears that an attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely before President George Bush leaves office. The Sunday Times has learnt that up to five generals and admirals are willing to resign rather than approve what they consider would be a reckless attack.
“There are four or five generals and admirals we know of who would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran,” a source with close ties to British intelligence said. “There is simply no stomach for it in the Pentagon, and a lot of people question whether such an attack would be effective or even possible.”
Good. It would be NICE to think that some people in the Pentagon actually have an ounce of principle, and we haven't seen much of that in the last six years.
Of course, if it happens, Bush will just get five NEW Generals, all of whom agree with everything he says, and will claim that he "listens to his Generals."
And his sycophants will swear to it.
