Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Two in a day but hey, Donald Rumsfeld has resigned at SecDef. All I can say to that is


I really think he should have been canned back about August 2003 when it became glaringly obvious that he had been dead bloody wrong when he Pooh Poohed Gen Shinseki's concerns about how many troops would be needed to pacify Iraq and how long it would take. (more than we have there now and several more years)

Former CIA head Robert Gates has been nominated as his replacement. I expect the confirmation hearing will be brutal.

Now now, just because Runsfield is a total incompetent ass is no reason to be too harsh. The person who really deserves a swift kick out the door is his boss who left an incompetent ass remain in office.

"Let"? As I recall, Rummy resigned two or three times, but Bush didn't accept the resignation. That's a bit more than "letting" him remain in office; more like insisting on it.
