I'd like to invite the secretary of defense to jump up and bite my ass.
Rumsfeld: War critics suffer ‘moral confusion’
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld on Tuesday accused critics of the Bush administration’s Iraq and counterterrorism policies of trying to appease “a new type of fascism.”
In unusually explicit terms, Rumsfeld portrayed the administration’s critics as suffering from “moral or intellectual confusion” about what threatens the nation’s security and accused them of lacking the courage to fight back.
Ummm, no. We're not the least bit confused. As for morals, I believe it's the republican party and the Bush administration who has the morality problem.
We understand perfectly that there are muslim extremists who would like to blow us up. Where we differ is on the best method of combating those terrorists.
Rummy and chimpy think that invading a secular country that was not a threat to us and blowing the shit out of it was a reasonable plan to combat al queda. Rummy and chimpy think that making everyone in the muslim world hate us is a good PR strategy. Rummy and chimpy think that breaking our army and bogging them down in an endless clusterfuck is good strategic planning. Chimpy and Rummy think that a show of force brings "clarity" to a situation, never mind if it also kills or mains a couple of hundred thousand civilians in the process.
I think their policies are failures and their ideas on foreign policy are absurd. And I think killing civilians in the name of "spreading democracy" is murder.
But we agree on one thing. America is under assault from a new type of facism.
It's called conservative republicanism. I say we fail to confront it to our peril.
As for my courage, hey Rummy! why don't you come over here and fucking jump on my goddamned razor sharp pitchfork? Last time I checked, it was your party that is overrun by a bunch of whiny-assed chickenhawks.
I think we've all had just about enough of your nonsense, you insane, pathetic, delusional, war-mongering old man.
PS. Any democrat in public office who falls for Rummy's bullshit will be summarily shot into the sun.
