In his radio interview with Rush Limbaugh, Mr. Rumsfeld said that those who had spoken out against him represented "the same kinds of criticism that occurred in the Revolutionary War and World War I and World War II and the Korean War, Vietnam War; it's not new." - New York Times
In the first place, it speaks volumes that the Defense Secretary of the United States goes on the radio show of a drug-hazed right-wing extremist to defend his failures. I guess that's the only sympathetic audience he has left.
In the second place, those wars he is talking about weren't fought anything LIKE this one. Isn't Rummy's whole thing that he was going to fight a war in a NEW WAY? And NOT like they were fought in those other conflicts?
In the third, is he just NUTS? Has he been taking as many drugs as Rush?
He thinks that because SOMETIMES criticism is invalid, he can therefore ignore ALL criticism and ASSUME that ALL of it is invalid?
Well, no WONDER Iraq is such a filthy mess, when the operation is being run by someone whose thinking process is that diseased.
Donald Rumsfeld and the neocons have not been right about a SINGLE THING. Not one thing. And they STILL stand there and pretend that they're experts, and it's the people who have been proven RIGHT who don't know what they're talking about.
Here Donald, tell us us how great everything is going:
Four Marines were reported killed in fighting west of Baghdad, bringing the U.S. death toll for this month to 47 — compared with 31 for all of March.
