7. Trying to allign Iraq with WW2...
Edited on Fri Aug-11-06 11:37 AM by TwoSparkles
"Flags of Our Father" is about Iwo Jima.

Another pathetic, Rumsfeld attempt at trying to psychologically equivocate WW2 with the discombobulated, ill-planned, perverse Iraq war.

If I hear/see one more comparison between WW2 and the Iraq fiasco--I'll scream.

Instead of spewing continual lies--you would think that anything to do with WW2--
would remind Rumsfeld of the glaring failures of the Iraq war.

In WW2--we stated, cogent goals that were consistent throughout the war.

Unlike WW2, Rumsfeld went into a foreign country with absolutely no frickin plan beyond the first week of battle. In Rumsfeld's own words, "We underestimated the psychology of the Iraqi people."

In WW2--we planned and trained for an entire year before our paratroopers were dropped
on the beaches of Normandy. Our guys knew where every berm was within 20 miles! In
Iraq--we "underestimated" "misunderestimated" so badly that we've incited a civil war.

What Rumsfeld has done in Iraq, is equivalent to us landing in Normandy--and fucking everything
up so badly and inciting so much anger that we start a civil war in France!

How DARE that evil piece of shit publicly stand in the shadow of WW2 and pretend that his
pathological failure even remotely resembles WW2.
