CBS Arrogance - Insult to troops

I happened to be awake in the middle of the night so turned on CBS news "Up to the Minute". Ret. Major Mike Lyon who is now a CBS Military Analyst was on giving his review of the war, where we go from here, etc.

Although he was somewhat fair in his analysis of what the situation is and the future will be when we defeat the enemy, his John Kerryesk arrogance (seems to be widely evident at CBS news) unfortunately had to come out when about 2/3 of the way through the video, he reports that our military will not look the same. Rather than recruit large numbers of boots on the ground, tankers, etc we will recruit "intelligent" people.

Thanks for the clip...haven't watched CBS in a long time. Will give him credit though for talking about the "long war"...that our leaving Iraq would not be the end of it. Too many people I talk to actually think that if we "brought them home now" every thing would be hunky dory.
