Germany regrets McChrystal Afghanistan departure
DJIBOUTI June 23 (Reuters) – German Defence Minister Karl-Theo zu Guttenberg said on Wednesday he regretted the departure of U.S. General Stanley McChrystal as the top commander in Afghanistan.
“McChrystal was a very reliable partner. I regret not being to work with him any longer,” said Guttenberg, on a trip to visit German troops in the Horn of Africa.
Again Reuters. I come to you for news, not speculative bulls–t.
Germany does not regret the firing of an insubordinate American General leading a VERY unpopular war. The Reuters headline for the article is false and deceiving.
The German Defense Minister, purportedly made a statement saying he regretted not being able to work with McChrystal any longer.
A POLITICIAN IN GERMANY MADE A DIPLOMATIC STATEMENT AFTER McChrystal WAS FIRED.
Germany doesn’t give a s–t about McChrystal. They want out of Afghanistan.
That headline was a bit broad, considering the actual story content: GBU Editor
