Defense Dilettantes' Sloganeering

     See the post below.  C-SPAN balanced the neo-con/con love fest with a follow up starring Generals.  The program speakers are listed here.

     Lt. Gen Paul Van Riper gives us the title of this post, in reference to the "transformation" of the military.  He compares the rush to Baghdad to the Blitzkrieg.  He was the Chief of Training of the Marine Corps. 

     Damnit, lots of sane humans have made of the same points, made rational points, but America tends to ignore anyone but the Generals.  It's a blindspot, which is encouraging a military coup against the Government.  Are other forces getting closer to that position faster, making the previous sentence excessive?  Quite possibly.  Not likely.
