What Color is the Sky on Donald Rumsfeld's Planet?

You just have to wonder. On which planet was Donald Rumsfeld born? Is there something about the earth's unique blend of oxygen, nitrogen and other trace gases which has had a detrimental effect on his obviously limited thought process or are the creatures from Neocon Prime just delusional by a deficit in their very inadequate evolution?

Only a few days ago I wrote about how the President had told the truth by accident and now it seems as if his number one incompetent is following suit. That's right. The Necons are again trying to change reality.

For those of you who missed Rumsfeld's latest bout with "foot in mouth disease," it seems as if the Ambassador of the Neocon Empire is now claiming that he had never predicted how long the Iraq war would last, claiming that he has "avoided predicting the timing."

There's just one problem with Mr. Rumsfeld's assertion.

It isn't true.

During November 2002, when the Regime was trying to sell this debacle, they openly bragged about the brevity of their proposed debacle. Said Donald Rumsfeld: "The gulf war in 1990 lasted five days on the ground. I can't tell you if a use of force in Iraq today would last five days, or five weeks, or five months, but it certainly isn't going to last any longer than that." Only a few months late , in February 2003 (before a friendly crowd of American troops), Rumsfeld repeated his lie in a slightly mutated form, quipping: "It is not knowable how long that conflict would last. It could last six days, six weeks, I doubt six months."

Ahhhh....Excuse me Mister Rumsfeld, but the last time I looked at my calendar it was March 2006, and your flower laden cakewalk hasn't lasted for six months. it has lasted for a horrific thirty-six months (three years, if you will) and his emptly vessel of a leader is now telling us that we will be there for years to come.

Nor was Mister Rumsfeld alone in his optimism. During the run up to our invasion, Wisconsin Public Radio presented a wide range of experts from both sides of the political spectrum. Those on the left were warning us about the dangers of invading a sovereign nation, insisting that we would find ourselves in the middle of a guerrilla war and that we would be there for years to come. In sharp contrast those on the right were predicting a cake walk, a shower of candy and flowers for the liberating troops; that they would be home in six to twelve months.

Well, my fellow Americans, I don't know how to tell you this, but the Neocon Imperialists were wrong then and they are wrong now.

Despite the President's moronic attempt to blame the messenger (i.e. the media), the truth of the matter is that American soldiers are still being killed and disabled in Iraq. The president's fifth column supporters claim that the war is going so much better because the number of U.S. deaths has gone down, but they conveniently fail to mention is that the number of wounded American troops has actually gone up--along with the number of killed and wounded Iraqis.

Someone should really tell Mister Rumsfeld that he is no longer living on Neocon Prime where he can change the truth to protect a corrupt or incompetent leader from justly deserved criticism. And while I appreciate a good yard as the next guy, I still have to wonder...

What color is the sky on the sky on Donald Rumsfeld's home planet?

Of course, the number of Iraqis dead is unknown because the coalition can't be bothered to count the, how dignified.

Interesting that he thought it would be such an easy time over there for the troops, what with those stockpiles if WMD's that Iraq had. Makes you wonder why he didn't sign himself up for battle if it were going to be that easy.

Still losing soldiers in Iraq? We're still losing soldiers in Afghanistan! And now they're greasing up the war machine for an attack on Iran? I guess Bush never had to clean his plate before he got dessert.

But Lew, isn't that an administration trait? Start a project, ruin it, find a way for W/s Crime Family to profit off of the damage and then move on to the next debacle.

I'm beginning to see what Brandon means when he says this Regime is based on sociopathy.

Advocate1 said...

That should read W's Crime family.

Ragnarok said...

and to answer your question the sky is nothing but stars and stripes on Rumsfeld's planet. (end sarcasm)

It's blood red--just like the Neocons hands
