More From The Secretary Of Wingnuttery

My Way News:
'We are capable of dealing with other problems were they to occur,' he told troops at an airfield in the Nevada desert.

'It would be unfortunate if other countries thought that because we have 136,000 troops in Iraq today, that we're not capable of defending our country or doing anything that we might need to do,' he said in response to a question about military options for dealing with Iran.


Rumsfeld said there was no doubt the United States could win militarily in Iraq if it stayed the course.
On one level, I realize he has to say such things. We wouldn't want our enemies thinking we're stressed out or weak enough not to respond to our own defence. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure he believes what he says about Iraq, and that, IMHO, makes him delusional. At this point, "stay the course" means "I can't fix it, but I won't admit it." It's not a plan, it's a defect of character.
