Leadership Crisis in the Military ?

Lt. Col. Paul Yingling has published this interesting article in the Armed Forces Journal: "A Failure in Generalship"

He said that our generals should have given better advice to our government, which amounts to saying they should have told the President (or Rumsfeld) he was wrong and accept being forced out of their jobs.

The willingness of an advisor to disagree with the boss even at if the cost is one's job is a Confucian virtue.

Essentially, Col. Yingling said our generals need some Confucian virtues!
