This is "reaching out"?
Our notably humble Secretary of "Defense" gives the Democrats the opportunity to approach and apologize for the comments HE made the other day:
In a letter to Congress's top Democrats, Rumsfeld said recent remarks he made during a speech in Salt Lake City were misrepresented by the media, including by the Associated Press. Rumsfeld said he was "concerned" by the reaction of Democrats, many of whom called for his resignation and said he was treading on dangerous territory.
"I know you agree that with America under attack and U.S. troops in the field, our national debate on this should be constructive," Rumsfeld wrote Friday.
Translation: I know you wouldn't want to criticize our Glorious Leader and our Noble Struggle in THIS TIME OF WAR... if you know what I mean (*coughTREASONcough*)
"Thought and careful preparation went into what I said," Rumsfeld wrote in the letter. "It is absolutely essential for us to look at lessons of history in this critical moment in the war on terror." I was honored by the reception my statements received from our veterans.
Yeah, let's look at history. Let's look at the lame comic-book version of history, not the real version where we might learn from the British occupation of Iraq or the French experience in Algeria, much less parallels with The War That Must Not Be Named:
9. In the spring of 1966, a journalist interviewed an Air Force general in Saigon:
Journalist: Let me ask you a philosophical question. What is your reply to those who say we ought to stop our bombing-both North and South-and that would bring us closer to negotiating an end to this
General: Well, we were sent out here to do a job, and we're doing it, and we'll stay here until it's done.
Journalist Thank you.
I think it further proves the arrogance of these people that, once again, their idea of "reaching out" consists of "let's agree that I'm right". They're never wrong. They never compromise. To them, negotiation, to paraphrase Grover Norquist, is date rape.
More on the lie of "Islamic fascism".
