Should General Dempsey Resign?

Listening to Martin Dempsey speak over the past months, one might conclude that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is uncomfortable waging war in Iraq under the White House banner of 'No Boots on the Ground.' Time and again this fall, Dempsey has said U.S. ground troops may be required to take on the Islamic State militias in Iraq, perhaps in offensive operations with Iraqi forces as forward advisers or spotters for U.S. airstrikes. The White House has drawn a seemingly harder line against recommitting Americans to combat in Iraq. If Dempsey, a soldier with a long and distinguished career, cannot in good conscience preside over a military campaign he feels will be ultimately doomed, should he quietly (or noisily) resign?
