I’ll say it again, Rumsfeld must go!
Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld is a serious hindrance to American homeland security and the proliferation of freedom worldwide. In light of his anti-Semitic, anti-American remarks in the Sunday Washington Post comparing the “war” in Iraq to the war against the Third Reich, it is high time to overthrow the incompetent, hand-flailing imbecile.

Turning our backs on postwar Iraq today would be the modern equivalent of handing postwar Germany back to the Nazis. It would be as great a disgrace as if we had asked the liberated nations of Eastern Europe to return to Soviet domination because it was too hard or too tough or we didn’t have the patience to work with them as they built free countries.
Media observers seem to have resigned themselves to mere observers of the U.S. puppet regime, writing of punditry panache, without daring call for action — seemingly allowing Rumsfeld’s remarks fly over their heads, despite his standing as one of the most powerful people in the world. Hey, the Vietnam-Iraq analogy is apparently comforting the Army.
As a fourth year of occupation begins in Iraq, many are oddly singling out President Bush for his actions — though the fact that he never mentioned the word ‘war’ in his remarks over the weekend is not only beside the point, the only war I’m aware of him declaring involved the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. (Listen to today’s NPR report tracking the Path to Iraq).
It should be noted that Donald Rumsfeld has been involved at the highest level of government for over 40 years — shortly after entering Congress in 1963, he spearheaded a coup which led to the appointment of Gerald Ford as House minority leader — and has never loosened his grip on the gauntlet of power.
Our government, and primarily our defense strategies has left our country extremely vulnerable. Just weeks after a near-sale of U.S. ports to the state government of the United Arab Emirates, it comes to light that a $1.2 billion takeover of U.S. plants that make military equipment by another UAE-owned company, Dubai International Capital and Doncasters Group, will be delayed for at least two months from its March 31 closing date, while the deal is under investigation.
Rumsfeld comes from a generation that vehemently warned against the potential staying power of Communist regime’s like China. Now, not only is China among the most powerful nation’s in the world, but the United States owes the red empire a significant portion of its multi-trillion dollar debt, or as the Times UK lovingly put it in a recent headline: “28 Eiffel Towers: Made out of Pure Gold.”
Rumsfeld has been breaching Constitutionally guaranteed checks and balances and endangering national security since the day he was named Secretary of Defense — over five years ago. Now, former Army Major General Paul D. Eaton, Sen. Joe Biden (D-CT) and others are demanding his removal. We’ll never get to “last throes” (not to mention “mission accomplished“) until we throw out the garbage-can rubbishocracy. Three years is three too many.
Spread the word — in the name of homeland security and global welfare — Rumsfeld must go. Sure, it may be too late already, but its certainly not too soon.
