Rumsfeld is an idiot
I could think of nothing more witty or appropriate for a headline.

Rumsfeld is also reportedly, acccording to the Time magazine article, also a Horse's Ass (see post below). Arrogant, disliked by all in the Department he views as his own fiefdom.

But that's not the purpose of this post.

Yesterday, Rumsfeld - he of the "no evidence is proof that Iraq is hiding weapons" fame - said France and Germany represent "Old Europe" in their position against the "war" in Iraq. It is a stance perceived by those
who it suits to take it this way, as "anti-American."
Rumsfeld here
is talking out of his ass.
"Germany has been a problem, and France has been a problem," said Rumsfeld, a former NATO ambassador. "But you look at vast numbers of other countries in Europe. They're not with France and Germany on this, they're with the United States."

Germany and France represent "old Europe," and NATO's expansion in recent years means "the center of gravity is shifting to the east," Rumsfeld said.

French President Jacques Chirac and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder said Wednesday in Paris they were not convinced a war with Iraq was necessary while U.N. arms inspectors were still searching Iraq for weapons of mass destruction.

"Any decision belongs to the Security Council and the Security Council alone, which will address the issue after having examined the latest inspectors' report," Chirac said. "Secondly, as far as we're concerned, war always means failure."

"War always means failure."

Rumsfeld cannot count. This USA TODAY article seems to think that of the UN Security Council's five permenant members - China, Russia, USA, Britain and France - they've serious "no" from three of them and only Britain (America's aircraft carrier, USS KISSITHARD) has voiced support from the government.

Rumsfeld dismisses two countries in Europe. Germany is the most progressive country in europe. france is old europe. Good name-calling fffffffffffffucker.

How about France and Germany representing 20 percent of the population of the European union. How about facing the debate instead of "dismissing COUNTRIES!!!!!!!" You can't "dismiss" countries like you can vietnam draftees (An aside here where he apologizes - shit I hate being fair) Rumsfeld.

You rambled - blabbed and yacked without thinking because you think you can get away with it. Maybe a few months ago. Not now.
People are starting to wake up from their stupor. Fleischer and Powell say this president will not let opinion polls and, oh, other leaders of industriliazed countries, influence his decision on whether to go to war.

Really. Well, sure that independent streak sounds good and can even be admirable for a good cause. Except the majority of Americans and the majority of the world and the majority of your cabinet (secretly) and a growing number of Republicans who are actually decising to represent their constituents - know there' sno reaosn to bring Hussein down now.

This push for Dubya Dubya III is bone-headed
