It was just announced that ADM William Fallon, commander of US Central Command (CENTCOM) in charge of operations in the Middle East, has submitted his resignation.  Based on what I've heard from serving officers, he was the principal obstacle to the Bushit-Neocon fixation on war with Iran -- doubling down their failed bet in Iraq, so to speak.  He was likely pressured to go because of his opposition to widening the Bush catastrophe to include Iran.  The news story doesn't say when his resignation takes effect; and the White House will have to appoint a willing stooge in his place (which shouldn't be hard -- the senior officer corps is full of 'em).  But with vetting and confirmation hearings, etc. this could take some time.  Still, ADM Fallon's departure clears the way, sooner or later, for the assualt on Iran.  As the ancient Greeks used to say, "Whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad."
