US in Iraq
US Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld
Some US Generals want Donald Rumsfeld to resign

Gavin Esler talks to retired US Army Major General, Paul Eaton.

Opinion polls in the United States show that more and and more Americans oppose the war in Iraq.

They also believe the war has made the threat of terrorism worse.

Now some top military figures in the US are saying the same thing.

Now a group of Generals has called on US Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, to resign.

One of them is Major General Paul Eaton, now retired.

Both he and the other rebellious generals accuse Rumsfeld of incompetence.

But Gavin Esler asks Paul Eaton if the Generals are trying to mount a political coup?
