Officials Reportedly Saying, "What The Fuck?"

Via The Mighty Billmon (who has been on fire for the last two weeks), we are now hearing from Ken Silverstein at Harpers that U.S. troops may be headed for Lebanon, notwithstanding the bullshit currently peddled by our much vaunted Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.
According to the former official, Israel and the United States are currently discussing a large American role in exactly such a “multinational” deployment, and some top administration officials, along with senior civilians at the Pentagon, are receptive to the idea.

The uniformed military, however, is ardently opposed to sending American soldiers to the region, according to my source. “They are saying 'What the fuck?'” he told me.
I'll just bet they are. My, what lovely weather we're having, isn't it?

I wonder when the U.S. military brass are going to figure it out. Their civilian leadership isn't interested in reducing tensions in the Middle East. They're interested in trying to fulfill Biblical prophecy, and using American troops as pieces on their eschatological chess board to do it [*].

* Maybe, you have a more believable explanation for why they're on a single-minded quest to try to fuck up as much shit as possible. If so, feel free to speculate in the comments.
