    Perhaps they moved them somewhere or to somebody who will do their dirty work for them... I've heard Egypt is very nice at this time of the year.

    I'm sure it's for their own good. It must be hell having all those IRC observers staring at you all the time.

    Rumsfeld probably sees himself as a diplomat.

    A very smart soldier -- one who stays as far away from the battle as possible.

    Where does that leave Lon Cheney? He's clearly neither. What's his excuse?

    Vietnam? Other priorities. Desert Storm? War profiteering. WOT? Somewhere in the middle. Hey, we went to Iraq under sketchy circumstances... why not piss all over the Geneva Convention while you're at it? See if anyone is looking.

    Exactly. Public opinion, the Law, the Courts, objections of military commanders - none of it makes any difference to these folks. We need them out and a week from tomorrow we take a giant step in doing just that.

    And this is all while their running for re-election. Imagine them when they have nothing more to lose. If Bush is re-elected, look for an overwhelming majority of people to vote for whoever the Democratic candidate is in 2008. No matter who it is.

    Of course by then, most people will still hate us for invading Poland. ;) (there are several layers to that joke... think about it)
