quote of the day
"There's a guerilla war [in Iraq]."
What scurrilous, unpatriotic, Saddam-lovin' leftie peacenik uttered this scandalous claim?
Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz. Oops.
But don't worry -- Administration officials are confident Americans are, as the Financial Times put it, "prepared to accept the mounting death toll."
(Maybe, but the Washington Post reports that our soldiers are starting to grumble. And some Administration officials are beginning to figure out that rising casualties may take something of the bloom off of Bush's swaggering victory declaration.)
Despite the casualties, Mr Rumsfeld said he believed the US public felt the effort was “worthwhile” and that people “recognise the difficulty of the task”.
The arrogance and gall of these imperialist glory-hounds is quite beyond comprehension. I double-dog dare Rumsfeld to look the families of our fallen soldiers in the eye and ask them to "recognize the difficulty of the task."
