Let Me Put It This Way. Have You Ever Heard Of Plato? Aristotle? Socrates? Morons.
If ever you had a textbook example of A Man Wrong For The Job -- and BushCo is rife with them -- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is it. Wrong on tactics, wrong on strategy, wrong on budget needs, wrong on troop strength, wrong on post-war circumstances, wrong on every fuckin' thing. And it's not just that he's wrong; he's arrogantly wrong.
The money quote, of course, the one that sums up everything about Rummy, BushCo, and this whole misbegotten mess we're in, is:
Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know.God help us.
OT: What, no email, Filkertom? Okay, could you drop a line my way?
and add a 'com' to that.
I'd like to know the state you blog from, to list in our States dorectory at The American Street.
Bush is the High Ridge Government. The Middle East is Haven, thankfully without a Theisen or a Foraker for the time being.
Prepare yourself for the biggest fucking military disaster the United States has ever seen. The silver lining will be that it at last gets these fucktards out of DC to a hail of dead cats and rotten fruit.
