The Reuters headline “Rumsfeld arrives in Afghanistan; 30 Taliban killed” amuses me.
Yep. I saw it and thought something along the lines of “Rummie thanked the audience and said he was there till Tuesday, try the veal”.
Reminds me of the 1000 Secret Rumsfeld Kung Fu technique. He shows up, take some names, and kicks ass.
International cooperation in the war against “Talebinistan” seemed to be a moral imperative after 9-11. Bush’s un-provoked, unnecessary, largely unilateral invasion and unplanned occupation of Iraq (UULUIUOI)has drained off military assets, financial resources, and international consensus that would/could/should have clinched the deal. Now, I think, the UULUIUOI is eroding and corrupting the will and determination of the American people.
Tragedy is the familiar but unwelcome companion to history.
The will and determination of the American people is only eroded or corrupted if you choose to let it, or in your case, if you actively take a role in advancing it.
Thanks a bunch for your efforts, Vigilante.
Maybe I need to rethink the liberal claim about how dangerous to world peace Rummy is. I mean if his mere presence can kill so many we should either use him as a super weapon or entomb him for the safety of mankind.
Vigilante, non sequitur is the familiar but unwelcome companion to anti-war commentary.
