As long as he's teaching something he has enough enough familiarity with to teach and it isn't ROTC, I don't have anything against him teaching.

I have a bad feeling about Yale. It seems a tad militaristic, not to mention the skull and bones thing and the war memorial on campus. What's with these guys?

What subject will he teach? How to cover up
06:24 PM on 08/16/2010
What's he going to teach? Military-Civilian Media Relations 101? Let's face it, his role will be to attract big military contracts/grants and to draw in donors, a middleman for Yale... to use a polite term

You'd think the ivys would want someone successful teaching their students.
Torture and coverups of NFL stars friendly fire incidents must look better on his resume than it sounds.
Boss bashing is the new "leadership" quality so hard to find these days.

Who made this decision?

Let's hope it's also news when he signs consulting contracts too.

Well, if Skull and Bones needs more bones for their ceremonies, I guess Stan's buds in 'Stan can oblige after cleaning the meat off some collateral damage.

In a related story.......McChrystal originally turned down an offer to teach at Beck University because he reports Beck looked "uncomfortable and intimidated" with him in the room.

No, I think that the prospect of being paid in "survival seeds" by Beck is what really put him off the job.

General McCrystal's Teaching Guide:

Chapter One:
How to lie, deceive, cajole, cover up, and almost always get away with it.

Chapter Two:
Chapter One reduced to rubble by Pat Tillman's father.

Chapter Three:
Military Insubordination upon the POTUS, including speeches around the world looking to set POTUS war policies for him.

Chapter Four:
How undermining the POTUS is not always in the best interest of generals career and promotion path.

Chapter Five:
Other generals insubordinations upon the POTUS.

Chapter Six:
Lessons not learned by the General In Charge in Afghanistan from the circumstances surrounding General Douglas Mc Arthur and the POTUS, Harry Truman.

Chapter Seven:
Disgraced, relieved generals retire, then sell the garbage that they have something to say about 'leadership'.

This chapter is still under construction.

Re-fanned. Perhaps Chapter Eight: How Major General Smedley Butler was right after all and how all the graduates of Yale since 1946 sold all Mankind completely down the river for 30 pieces of silver by working on Wall Street and in the Military Industrial Complex en mass without every serving themselves! Other people's money. Other people's lives. Zero responsibility.

"WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes."

He is an expert on how to surrender own freedom, put on a uniform and obey every order coming from the corrupt ruling elites. He is also an expert on brain washing the naive and desperate American youth into surrendering their freedoms.

He could make a good teacher on these subjects. He is an example of what is wrong with the US ruling elite; crude materialism.

"Then that can't do,..."

Yale has gone down several notches since they spawned a dumb President. Now this. What next? On-line degrees?
05:19 PM on 08/16/2010
Teach what??? ... how to lie to parents about their sons death?? ... how to hide behind religious hypocrisy while running a covert assassination squad??? One thing for sure ... no one can accuse the USA of having too high a bar in selecting teachers.

We have reached a level commensurate with Texas Tech, where Gonzales was hired to teach Political Science.
