Surrender Monkeys

Rumsfeld: U.S. Troops Can Leave Before Iraq Peaceful
The United States does not have to wait until Iraq "is peaceful and perfect" before it begins to withdraw military troops from that troubled country, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said on Friday.

Responding to questions from reporters, Rumsfeld said Washington was determined to provide security for scheduled January elections in Iraq, where nearly 140,000 American troops are now fighting a growing insurgency.

But "any implication that that place has to be peaceful and perfect before we can reduce coalition and U.S. forces, I think, would obviously be unwise," he told a press conference after meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi.

I guess when John Kerry talks about reducing American forces it shows how he is unfit to be Commander-In-Chief, but when Donald Rumsfeld, the Iron Secretary of Defense and International Lawbreaker says so it is just hard headed realism and evidence of his straight talking style worthy of a one of the wits that share the spotlight with SNL drop-out Collin Quinn on "Tough Crowd".
