If you won't play my way redux..

Emma suggests, in commenting on this Slate article, that the Pentagon behaves like a six year old child. In the same article General Van Riper (there seem to be hundreds of these generals) comments on the failed war game exercise (one that set much basis for the current 'effort'):

Finally, Van Riper quit the game in protest, so as not to be associated with what would be misleading results. As he explained in his e-mail, "You don't come to a conclusion beforehand and then work your way to that conclusion. You see how the thing plays out."
There is no surprize here. And as I previously noted it is the ongoing behavior of the Bush deministration.
