Rumsfeld serves up troops for Christmas dinner

"U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld wrapped up his visit to Iraq at a Christmas eve dinner" by feeding American troops into the US war machine.

"Escorted by Apache helicopters to the U.S. regional headquarters in Mosul, Rumsfeld lent a hand serving troops" assorted lies.

"Addressing [surviving] troops later, he reflected on a year in which" hundreds of Americans were killed and tens of thousands of Iraqi lives destroyed.

"When you read things and hear things that express doubt about the future here in Iraq, or in Afghanistan, know that there have always been doubts expressed, there have always been those who have suggested that the cause could not be successful, that the cause would be lost," he said.

And know that they were right.

Just what, pray tell, is this so called 'cause' he speaks of?

In 2003 it was to counter the supposed threat of WMDs.
When that washed out, it morphed into spreading democracy throughout the middle east.

I guess ol' Rummy doesn't have the heart to tell the troops that this wanton destruction of life we're engaged in is for the purpose of protecting US currency's oil standard. Its kinda hard to get enthusiastic about killing someone over that. Lacks an element of drama.

In any case, Merry HO-HO to everyone and their families! May you have a joyous and peaceful holiday season.

Qrswave, thanks for your efforts and time.
