Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Peter Pace Out

Posted by nytexan on June 8, 2007

Don’t let the door hit you in your homophobic ass. Thank god for Robert Gates not recommending Pace for another confirmation.

Washington Post:

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates announced today that Marine Gen. Peter W. Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will step down at the end of his two-year term in September, a decision Gates said he made to avoid possibly contentious re-nomination hearings before the Democratically-controlled Congress.

The surprise announcement means Pace will be removed from the nation’s top military post after just two years as chairman, the shortest tenure for a general officer since 1964. Virtually all of the 16 chairmen since 1949 have served at least four years.

Gates said he has recommended that President Bush nominate Adm. Michael G. Mullen, chief of naval operations, as the next chairman of the joint chiefs for the term that begins Oct. 1. Mullen is the longest serving of the service branch chiefs of staff.

Gates said that political considerations were at the root of his decision. He said he spoke to leaders on Capitol Hill and was warned that re-nomination hearings likely would focus on the Iraq war and would be a “very contentious process.”

    You are right about not wishing that job…

    I had not thought about what will happen in September. FUnny that’s when his term is up.

  3. FUCK YOU Peter Pace, you homophobic azzwipe.

    What a vile man. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass, cretin.

    What a shame. I have met the man on a few occasions, and he is a great leader! I wish there were many more leaders out there of this caliber. Unfortunately, we have all too many “leaders” who are just worried about their own political career or making some bunch of lunatic minority group happy rather than what is right for the country!

    My greatest hope someday soon is that this “politically correct” phase of society we are in goes the hell away! No one has the right not to be offended. If you don’t like the rules or the laws, get the hell out of the organization/country. There is no place in the military for skirt-wearing homos, and more leaders should recognize this. They bring down morale and effectiveness, and are a hinderance to the military mission.
