The Joint Chiefs Chairman, Secretary of Defense and "Almost Every Senior Military Officer ... is Against Launching Military Strikes Against Iran"

You've probably heard by now that the Commander of Centcom, Admiral Fallon, who has been described as the guy standing in the way of war with Iran, just resigned. The implications are so obvious that the Secretary of Defense was forced to try to calm the public. Today, he "described as 'ridiculous' any notion that Fallon's departure signals the United States is planning to go to war with Iran".

The good news is that, according to NBC's chief Pentagon correspondent, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the Secretary of Defense and "almost every senior military officer we've talked to is against launching military strikes against Iran".

Let's hope that - even with Fallon's resignation - the wisdom of military leaders concerning the folly of attacking Iran (and starting WWIII) prevails against the civilian chicken-hawk leaders who want to bomb Iran for reasons having nothing to do with the security of the United States.
