Admiral William Fallon's decision to step down as military commander for the Middle East will have various implications, particularly displayed through Washington's approach to Iran's nuclear programme.

I wonder how much of it was his decision...

told to, constructive dismissal, or voluntarily knowing what he was going to have to do if he decided to hang in there...

He was forced out, no doubt about it. You cant get in the way of Israel policy and stay in command.

GRRRRRR!!!!!

The only way into war with Iran now is with an incident. I am getting increasingly worried of a manufactured "incident". And no one will beleive what I say then because I am Iranian. I am going to be one pissed of mutherfucker. But you'll see, Iranians, by and large, will NOT resort to violence, we're just not like that. But I won't keep my mouth shut.

It's odd how many folks think of the phony Strait of Hormuz incident as justification, even after all these months, for military action against Iran. I guess it may not be alot of people, but someone cited that in a letter to the editor the other day so I assume the editor had several like-minded letters. :roll:

No doubt about it, there will be another manufactured incident. Apparently Adm. Fallon doesn't feel comfortable pulling the trigger from one of our nuclear subs in the Persian Gulf. Hopefully there are other people along the chain of command with a bit more self-restraint than Abizaid and Odierno and their ilk.

Well the coming collapse of the US economy via the banking system thanks to the Yen carry trade, and Federal Reserve/Subprime crisis irresponsibilities and offshore tax havens, will most likely be an incident in iteself. Economic 9/11 coming soon. All we need is a major recession/depression and maybe put the icing on the cake with another violent "incident" to slam the door shut.

Fallon always said he would resign before he would go along with a war with Iran. This could be the signal. The dollar dropped almost 2 cents today and oil reached a record $110.20 a barrle.

AIPAC trial is in a month. The admin is racing against the clock. I wonder what stunt they will pull.
