US Generals 'Will Quit' if Ordered on Iran


Times of London is reporting a number of senior U.S. commanders will resign if Bush orders a military strike against Iran.
“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.”
In related news, 60 Minutes last night had a segment, "Dissension in the Ranks," Watch video here via Raw Story. Also, Servicemembers join war protest with petition to congress, Common Dreams has it. It would appear that finally the servicemembers are catching a clue. I knew they would. Please read/watch this story-in-progress.
H/T to Naj and Lotus for the links.

I'm glad to see this, too, Hope. It'll be interesting to see if there are any reprisals against the service members who appeared, or signed the petition.

I am calling for a massive labour protest. Imagine if ALL workers in America went on strike for one day and said

NO AMERICA DOESN'T NEED WAR TO PROSPER A FEW!

imagine ...

they killed him ...
