What the f...? Can any of these imbeciles come up with a consistent story? Hot on the heels of Dick Cheney's "The insurgency is in its last throes" fantasy, we have Secretary of Pompous Arrogance Donald Rumsfeld telling a slightly different story:
Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Sunday he is bracing for even more violence in Iraq and acknowledged the insurgency "could go on for any number of years."
Defeating the insurgency may take as long as 12 years, he said, with Iraqi security forces, not U.S. and foreign troops, taking the lead and finishing the job.
Memo to members of the American military: I hope you enjoy Iraq, it appears you're going to be there for a while. I'll think of you while I'm vacationing in the Canadian Rockies or something, maybe sucking back a cool Big Rock, while you're sweeping the sand out of your tent.
BONUS SNARK: And to all those fellow Canadians who thought this invasion was such a terrifically, peachy-keen idea, well ... as I understand it, the military recruiters in the U.S. are having a pretty tough time making their quotas.
I'll bet they'd be just tickled to get some able-bodied, gung-ho Canadians. Really.
