Now, That's A General

Presented, almost, without comment from Ynet News,

"Dempsey was painfully clear. He basically said that Israel should not disregard the opinions of its top security officials, stop the constant chatter on Iran and refrain from any acts that may have an adverse effect on the global economy. The general also meant to tell Israel that it mustn't believe that Netanyahu has any control over the US because he has friends in the Republican Party. Dempsey laid down the facts: Israel is not America, it does not possess the same capabilities, and if Netanyahu and Barak continue wreaking havoc – Israel won’t have America either."

More and more I like this General Dempsey, and applaud President Obama for appointing him as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

When you said Netanyahu and Barak, my first thought was how does a active duty general get away with telling off the President?

Oops my bad, after reading the article, it was Ehud Barak. Even better. Good for Dempsey, we need clear thinkers and sayers in high places.
