"Q Tony, the Governor of Ohio, Ted Strickland, has written a couple of letters to President Bush, I don't know if you're aware of them, but he's asking for personal assurances from the President that the National Guard troops, before they get deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq, the equipment be there and that the training be adequate before they're sent off.
"MR. SNOW: Okay. I'm not aware of the Governor's letter, but we have always made it clear that nobody goes into combat without sufficient training and equipment, period. Now, a lot of that can be done in theater. It quite often is. But the most important reassurance, not only the forces, but their families need to know, is that if and when they go into combat, they will have the equipment they need, and they will have the training they need."
"A lot of that can be done in the theatre." They won't bother to train them BEFORE they send them. They'll send them into Iraq UNTRAINED and "train" them UNDER FIRE.
The same way they're "training" the Iraqi soldiers, and we see how well THAT'S working.
"Nobody goes into combat without training, but the training can be done in "theatre" - in other words, in combat.
God, these people are such total disgusting weasels that it's hard to imagine how they sleep at night. If they had twelve sides to their mouths, they'd talk out of all twelve.
