Apr. 23 - With the resignation last month of Admiral William Fallon, President Bush is now free to replace him with someone more open to military engagement with Iran.

As CENTCOM is the headquarters for all operations in the Middle East, having it headed by someone who is hawkish towards Iran is of the utmost importance to the neocon warmongers who want nothing more than to attack Iran before leaving office next January.
