Disgusting Beyond Belief...

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld warned yesterday that "moral and intellectual confusion" over the Iraq war and the broader anti-terrorism effort could sap American willpower and divide the country, and he urged renewed resolve to confront extremists waging "a new type of fascism."

Drawing parallels to efforts by some nations to appease Adolf Hitler before World War II, Rumsfeld said it would be "folly" for the United States to ignore the rising dangers posed by a new enemy that he called "serious, lethal and relentless."

In a pointed attack on the news media and critics of President Bush's war and national security policies, Rumsfeld declared: "Any kind of moral and intellectual confusion about who and what is right or wrong can severely weaken the ability of free societies to persevere."
So, my fellow readers, Mr. Rumsfeld says that if you oppose him and his continuing fiasco in Iraq, you are both Facist lovers as well as morally and intellectually confused.

I'm unable to get a hold of Mr. Rumsfeld's college transcripts, but even if he never took Psych 101, he has heard of 'projection' - that is,vehemently accusing others of what you are yourself

The problem is not us, Mr. Morality Rumsfeld - alias Mr. Abu Ghraib & Mr. Guantanimo - it's you and your ilk. And 2/3rds of our country are smarter than you are and now realize that, in addition to those who would harm us from the outside, there are very real threats to our republic and to our liberty (read the Federalist papers) who spout crap like the statements above, from those who would rob us of that liberty and attempt to highjack the Constitution - and waste our sons and daughters while they are doing it.

Four-Stars Admit to Possibility of Civil War in Iraq

...but not our Secretary of Offense who continues to use the its-the-size-of-California defense to perpetuate the myth from his boss that we are turning a corner. Bottom line - there is still no exit strategy. And don't look for one anytime before 2009.

We are now so impotent because of our maniacal focus on Iraq, that we have no flexibility or influence in the Middle East, and must resort to a carnvial game approach (John McCain's analogy) to rob Peter and pay Paul, moving insufficient numbers of troops around Iraq so that they can become targets elsewhere.

All this while our critical equipment is breaking down and wearing out.

All this while a significant chunk of our National Guard forces are not available in our own country (oh, but we are 'safer' here now, aren't we?).

And, as a result of the fact that we refused to even attempt to help broker an end to the Lebanon debacle, Condi Rice basically got told to take a hike and get out of Dodge.

What a disgrace of a foreign policy.

Maybe the far-right neocon high priests of fundamental Christianity are right - maybe Armageddon is upon us. It's just that they've got the location wrong. It's not in the Middle East - it's in Washington D.C. We can do something about it: work hard to ensure that those responsible will be 'raptured' out of leadership in the elections of 2006 & 2008.
