“As you know, you have to go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you want,”

Donald Rumsfeld, Dec 9, 2004.

So, the so-called “Reagan Conservatives” are more than willing to send our troops into deadly military battle with sub-par equipment, shortage of supplies and a faulty post-Saddam strategy. When asked to enter the much less lethal political arena with a candidate who they consider sub-par, short of temper, and faulty on principles, will they go to war with the candidate they have, not the candidate they want? The answer seems to be NO! They would rather pack up and go home. Too bad they refuse to consider the same for our troops.

Tells you all you need to know about THEIR principles, doesn’t it!

PS. I still think, ultimately, we did the right thing deposing Saddam, and Rumsfeld was, in his cold, hard, brutal way, absolutely right. But, both morally and economically, we simply cannot stay in Iraq indefinitely. Sooner or later, hopefully sooner, we will have to come home.
