Can We Afford A Civilian Government

"Allowing retired generals to dictate our country's policies and its leadership would be a dangerous precedent that would severely undermine our country's long tradition of civilian control of the military," Ford said.

Hum... If Dubya Picked Rummy to Reform the Military away from play "Team America:World Police" and to prevent the Evil Hitlary and her RadFemiNazi's from embarking on the Evil Of Nation Building as a Part of the Blue Helmetted One Worlders, why exactly DID El Presidente accidentally insert American Troops into Iraq to restore the Iraqi Wetlands without the planning, preperations, manpower, logistical support, Tactical Policy Guidelines, Strategic Vision, and Decisive Global Support????

Could it be that Dubya was having a Bad Hair Day, and well, Damn He just stabbed the troops in the back because his domestic political agenda of play acting as a War President took precedence over getting his head out of his Methane Port...
