Rumsfeld: Criticize the Iraq War, and you're just like a Nazi appeaser
Without a doubt, RumSkull is losing it bigtime: Here's the ugly facts: On Tues, 5 troops died in Iraq. That makes 13 troops in 2 days-- since we learned on Mon that 8 troops died. The total for the month of Aug thus far (and we still have 2 more days to go, folks) is 57 US troops killed. That is almost 2 per day. Here's the other ugly facts: An Aug 21/06 CNN poll shows 61% of adults polled say they oppose the war in Iraq. Just 35% of adults polled say they favor the war. Want to see even more poll numbers that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the clear majority of Americans disapprove of the war in Iraq, Bush's handling of the war, and feel that the US should have never launched this war? Then visit Polling Report Com. But what does Sec of Dense have to say about the clear feelings and wants of the majority of Americans?: "Speaking at the natl convention of the Amer Legion, Rummy could have taken the opportunity to address the critical challenges of the war in Iraq: The security situation in Baghdad, mounting US military and Iraqi civilian casualties and out-of-control costs. But instead, he took the opportunity to repeatedly attack (implicitly and explicitly) anyone who dares to criticize the admin's "stay the course" policy: 1.) Rumsfeld recited what he called the lessons of history, including the failure to confront Hitler, and the stupidity of those who tried to 'accomodate Hitler': "I recount this history because once again we face similar challenges in efforts to confront the rising threat of a new type of fascism. Can we truly afford to believe that somehow, some way, vicious extremists can be appeased? But some seem not to have learned history's lessons." So how exactly was Saddam threatening us w/this fascism which you Repukes suddenly love to spew about? (since it is your new buzz word) Seems to most that Saddam kept any and all extremists in check when he was in charge since they knew they'd be executed if they tried to stir up trouble, not to mention the fact that Saddam being in power kept Iran and their Shiia mullahs (which are such a huge threat in Iraq NOW) shaking in their boots since they perceived Saddam to be batshit crazy and believed the hype that he might have WMDs. 2.) Who does Rummy fault? That mythical liberal media, of course: "The problem is that the media have tended to emphasize the negative rather than the positive. More media attention was given to US soldiers' abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib than to the fact that Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ray Smith received the Medal of Honor." Uh, that might be b/c we expect soldiers to do the job they took an oath to do. We fully expect them to do the job they took an oath to do w/honor and w/o breaking internatl laws. And besides all that, we don't like to pay for humilitaing sexual, psychological, and physical abuse on our taxpayer dime. Simply put: Rummy and BushCo don't get it and never will. They actually think that if you dare to criticize the execution of this debacle in Iraq, that you hate America, that you somehow mysteriously love our enemies, and that you want to wrap your arms around fascism (even though the current agenda of the Repukes is far more fascist than anything we've seen in a longtime) but why would these morons bother to consult facts?
