It's not like I'm terribly interested in what the BTs have to say at the best of times, but this recent development just begs for a wanker perspective:
Months before the United States invaded Iraq in 2003, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld forbade military strategists from developing plans for securing a post-war Iraq, the retiring commander of the Army Transportation Corps said Thursday.
In fact, said Brig. Gen. Mark Scheid, Rumsfeld said "he would fire the next person" who talked about the need for a post-war plan.
So ... things not going all that well in Iraq? Maybe it's because there was no post-war plan. Could that be it?
In any event, the lines are open. I'm willing to listen to any wanker who wants to step up and suggest that deliberately avoiding even the smallest semblance of post-war planning represents some bizarre stroke of military genius on Rumsfeld's part.
Come on, folks. Take a shot at it. I'm all ears.
