Why Not A War Lord???

I mean, call me old fashion, and all that, but when the War President is floating the Balloon that someone else should be held accountable for the Fiasco, one would prefer that we do things in a Traditional Fashion, and not make a "war czar" - who could be the New Czar on par with the Czar for the war On Drugs, or the Czar for the War on Literacy...
Help Wanted: White House seeks high-profile manager of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to coordinate competing agencies and make sure President George W. Bush's unpopular strategy is implemented.

In a tradition of presidential trouble-shooting, the White House is considering creating a "war czar" post in the National Security Council and has put out feelers to some retired generals to see if they would be interested.

But no takers so far. The Washington Post said at least three retired four-star generals approached by the White House in recent weeks had turned down the position.
Retired Marine Gen. John "Jack" Sheehan, a former top NATO commander who rejected the White House overture, told the Post: "The very fundamental issue is, they don't know where the hell they're going."

After U.S. intelligence agencies came under fire for failures related to the September 11 attacks and Iraq, an "intelligence czar" was created as recommended by the 9/11 Commission.

Now remind me again, why it is I am Suppose to offer up Blind Allegience to the Prez And His Possey???

No SERIOUS, Please, run that routine back at me one more time, but this time with Some SERIOUS Meaning!!!

{ Would this be a really bad time to start talking about The Tai Ping Rebellion - and with it, not merely the interesting piece of Theology about how some were on the Side of Jesus's Little Brother - while the Central Government turned to the Gentleman Scholars to Raise Troops, which, tragically, in the end would fuel the rise of War Lordism....

Or should we Just Keep Singing the Praises Of Foot!!! }
