Revolt of the Admirals; Revolt of the Pensioners

The retired Generals calling for the resignation of their former boss reminded me we've been here before with the Revolt of the Admirals --sort of-- back in 1949. Wikpedia does a nice brief on the moment.

Remember disbanding the force all together seriously considered then. The only defense America needed was a nuclear threat.

It is very similar to the Muscular Isolationism we may well find Democrats advocating in 2008.
