A long list of names which are said to be of persons that may have to retire as a consequence of the appointment of one person, is travelling round. Various other insinuations, some bad , others very sad , are thrown into the review.
Usually one wishes these insinuations are untrue. But many would say they have always been true because it is tradition.
No matter how these issues are explained away, it is a bad system that allows a struggling country to loose dozens of very senior military officers just for a reason as naive as tradition of sucession in the armed forces.
We can think and find a solution to such a wasteful system.
Haba, we can do better thinking.
