Most everyone has heard about the soldier standing up at Camp Pendelton and sticking it to Donny Rumsfeld. Now the administration is trying to paste a band-aid on the situation and make people feel better about the situation.
Let's see how far this one bleeds out from beneath the surface of the wound. Of course, those who are willing to vote for a liar are most certainly going to believe the Bushies when they say they are doing all they can to armor the troops.
The situation is easy pickings for the comedians - as Leno stipulates in one of the articles:
Late night comedians have seized on the issue as well, and comic Jay Leno poked fun at Rumsfeld for saying that armor did not always provide protection. "Then he got in his armored car and left," said Leno to laughs from the audience.
In the end, the troops suffer for it. More dead, forthecoming as we approach the January "elections," no doubt.
I wonder how the Bushies are going to feel about a properly elected Shiite government that aligns more with Iran than the US. What are they going to do, stage a coup and prop up another puppet government? No wait, that is what happened in Panama...okay, well there are plenty of models to choose from when you are looking for ways to assasinate administrations that "we" don't like.
