    How many generals have to criticize how this administration has screwed up Iraq, before the true believers no longer believe?

    Answer: To infinity and beyond and then it will still not be enough.

    Let me get this right? You do not want us there and think we should have just pulled out or should now BUT are complaining cause the plan originally was to pull out in 2 years?

    Idiot. You sure you were a Col? You are aware no plan survives intact once fighting starts?

    C'mon RGS, of course he was an officer. That's why he doesn't have a fucking clue as to how things really work. You know, the officer briefs his plan, the NCO "tweaks" it into a functional real plan and the officer claims credit when everything goes great. If it fails, the officer claims that the NCO didn't follow the plan.

    If you were unfortunate enough to work with such assholes, sorry about that.

    I didn't, I wasn't. I also was privileged to work with some very good Senior SNCOs and junior troops. Maybe, we sometimes attract what we are.

    Please explain why they shit canned the plans for what would have to be done after the initial invasion to counter the insurgency they knew would happen.

    You are saying that this was good planning? If you are, you really shouldn't be criticizing my statement, my friend.

    Put aside the partisan crap for a second. They had a complete plan to deal with what actually happened and they got rid of it. This put Sanchez in a position that he and his troops were not prepared for. That is good planning.

    Rummy knew about the plan and it being shit canned.

    Why would anyone "put aside the partisan crap" when talking to you? It is ALL you have. Every post every thread, you attack anyone that does not lean so far left the are off the map. You make bald faced lies and can not back them up, then you play Rodney King and ask " Can we not all just get along?"

    You are a Hypocrite of the worst sort.

    You are so full of crap, Retired. Please point out all the ball faced lies I have posted.

    I don't have to resort to your level of name calling. That in itself says something about the strength of your arguments.

    I CRITICIZE BUSH. I WILL CONTINUE TO AS LONG AS OUR TROOPS ARE DYING FOR NOTHING IN IRAQ. YOU MAY BE A TRUE BUSH BELIEVER, I AM NOT. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU EXPECT? THAT I PRAISE SOMEONE I CONSIDER A MURDERER?

    I don't blanket curse the right like you do the left. So get off you high horse and face reality. Your partisanship exceeds mine.

    Yup, calling the President a murderer sure proves the point doesn't it?

    And you could have made that point without all of the partisan comments you claim to hate so much. You of all people should know how fucked up things get when the civilians get involved in military planning. Wasn't it LBJ that was actually picking bombing targets in Vietnam? Wasn't it Bill Clinton's administration that denied the request for armor in Somalia? Face facts, it ain't one side or the other that has a claim on fucking up the military plans. They both suck at it. Should just tell the military what they want done and let the military go handle it.

    That's my point. Right now it's the Bush boys. So who should I criticize now? LBJ. I already did that for Vietnam.

    Retired, you attack the left en masse. I attack you statments and Bush. There is a difference that you can't quite grasp.
