The Insurgency? Later...We Have Verbs To Conjugate!

CNN:
But retired Army Gen. Paul Eaton told CNN that if you spoke up and the Pentagon disagreed, "Then you're going to have a problem."

Eaton reflects what many critics claim about Rumsfeld's controversial management style and the decisions that stem from it: that Rumsfeld doesn't listen; he doesn't like dissent; and he dismisses ideas that differ from his own.

His concern with detail left one former general perplexed.

Former Lt. Gen. Mike DeLong said that Rumsfeld corrected his grammar the first time he briefed the secretary.

"He said, 'Stop. ... General, there was no verb in the last sentence," DeLong said.
If Kubrick had put it in Dr. Strangelove, it would have been a well-worn knee-slapper by now.

Some day, it will all come out about how Donald Rumsfeld used to sit around with his staff and watch torture videos for fun and relaxation.

Let's see:

Rumsfeld ... hubris ... delusional ... self-destruction ... senile ...

Nope, no verb there.

How about Rummy complaining that Bush was visiting the factory of the M1A1 battle tank, thus sending the wrong message about transformation? This was while the Iraqi insurgency ballooned.

Rumsfeld is not a sane man.

If there isn't a serious change of leadership in November I'm not sure anything will be funny ever again.

No change in November. The usual suspects will be back.

Rumsfeld will serve out his term and we can only hope that the person who takes over DOD will fix the collosal mess he and Shrub have made out of the military and equipment.

The military has to have functioning equipment to be able to respond to any other global crisis that might spring up. Kind of tough when the equipment is waiting in depots waiting to be refurbished.

I would love to see Rumsfeld kicked out of the administration and asked to answer for his reckless and selfish behavior. Anyone who comes after him has a Herculean task ahead of them, and I can't imagine there's anyone who can help put right all that he has screwed up. Clean up after hurricane Katrina will be nothing compared to the mess that will be left to clean up after Rumsfeld.

"At the end of the second of two interviews, I quoted former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara: “Any military commander who is honest with you will say he’s made mistakes that have cost lives.”

“Um hmm,” Rumsfeld said.

“Is that correct?”

“I don’t know. I suppose that a military commander ...”

“Which you are,” I interrupted.

“No I’m not,” the secretary of defense said...

"This is not a prediction that things are going poorly or better," Schoomaker told reporters.

"It's just that I have to have enough ammo in the magazine that I can continue to shoot as long as they want us to shoot. And that's what we're planning to do," he said...

Hi, my name is Kenny Williams and I have suffered from severe acne. In fact, I also had problems with hair loss and weight loss and I lost all self confidence at some point and all my friends too. Now, a few months later, after discovering the Health Reviews website, I feel much much better. After reading their success stories and recommendations, their Top Health Reviews really helped me. Do you realize how good can this be? NO more problems. Finally I can got back my smile. That is the reason I am so happy now!
