He is talking about the as@holes, packaged by the media, who are stabbing him and Tommy Franks, and the rest of the military, in the back.

Showing their desperation, clearly.

The only reason they're being stabbed in the back is that's what happens when you're running away.

That's pretty clear by the way he handles assinine questions from reporters.

Supporting Rumsfeld and the Bush Admin is the same as opposing our troops. Supporting people with no clear plan who are directly responsible for men's and women's lives affected by no clear plan is the same as giving aid and comfort to our enemies.

Mul, you are an enemy of the U.S. Military.

By your logic, we shouldn't have supported Roosevelt during WWII. Who could argue that he got us into that conflict with a clear plan and exit strategy?

The fact is, no one has ever, ever gotten into a war with an exit strategy. Gulf I is the only exception.

In WWII, we were attacked without notice. the War in Iraq is one of choice, meaning you really pretty much have all the time in the world to plan, and indeed, Shinsecki (sp) spelled out a good plan with enough troops to get the job done.

For political reasons, he was sacked, and the Military has paid the price for poor planning from the civilian branch ever since.

The writing was on the wall for as long as 3 years before we were attacked. Plenty of time to start planning...which we did. We just didn't bother with an "exit strategy".

I think our exit strategy was similar to Shinsecki's: pour as many troops as we could into the war to ensure victory. The opposite was done in Iraq.

I don't agree with the lack of an 'exit strategy' for WWII. Our plan was to put the Japanese back within their own borders, and eliminate the German war machine. In both instances, the postwar occupation was long planned and (from the distance of decades) operated very smoothly. This is a fact despite deperate efforts of the neocons a couple of years back to claim occupying Iraq was just like occupying Germany.

Mul, you are an enemy of the U.S. Military.
And this is the kind of support that they have been getting from the Democrats. You call this support?



Support like this and you do not need an enemy.

No wonder the Swift Boat Vets hated Kerry...Calling them baby-killers and painting them as war-criminals...stabbing his American military in the back, ushering in a blood bath that the left assured would not happen.

Iraq is right out of the left's Vietnam playbook.

No, he doesn't like to have his actions questioned. He is one of the worst Sec. Def's in recent history, a collossal failure; yet he motors on.

Reporters should be treating him like he's treated them for the last 5+ years, as you would with any failed thug.

No American should support volunteer troops who are continuing to commit one of the largest war crimes in modern American history.

Why would they?

Swift boat vets, those that ran the show, were paid Republican shills. Get a grip.

Hagel was on local radio today. He says that these complaints should be looked at.

Hagel is 100 times the man rummy will ever be.

I don't know, CC, but the head guy, the one that "wrote" the book about the whole thing and was a Republican darling and on Sean Hannity's show quite a bit, has been a paid Republican political hack for over 30 years.

Now me, I don't like John Kerry, he's the reason the Dems lost the election pure and simple. If they had had a good candidate, they would have clean Bush's clock for him, but they didn't.

About as dishonest as one can get.

Should I make up a picture of marines in a VW bus approaching a bunch of buried mines in the road and Bush saying in the background that they have his full support.
