Ralph Peters- McChrystal morally oblivious

Ralph has all the self control of a 12 year old. Always willing to play the outrageously outraged card over any form of reasoned discourse, he gives hyperbolic rhetoric a bad name. What a buffoon.

In Afghanistan, our leaders are complicit in the death of each soldier, Marine or Navy corpsman who falls because politically correct rules of engagement shield our enemies.

Mission-focused, but
morally oblivious, Gen. Stan McChrystal conformed to the Obama Way of
War by imposing rules of engagement that could have been concocted by
Code Pink:

* Unless our troops in combat are absolutely certain that no civilians are present, they're denied artillery or air support.

* If any civilians appear where we meet the Taliban, our troops are to "break contact" -- to retreat.

McChrystal is morally oblivious, really? What an insulting and obviously wrong thing to say. He is a well-respected and honorable man, and for a bomb-throwing jackass like Peters to call him morally oblivious is shameful. Hell in a better world McChrystal would call him out and shoot the bastard in a duel. 

You can disagree about whether the new ROE will achieve the desired effect but to impugn the morals of a good man by saying he doesn't care for the lives of his troops is low. But Peters inhabits the gutter and I guess it is probably foolish of me to expect anything other than douchebaggery from him.
