    Yeah Bonnie, Hopefully some will listen to you that figure I'm either out to bash Bush or the Democrats. Go figure. I could care less, as long as they hear that both sides are reading the results wrong and get out their own message to do what is right!

    I owe you rep!

    Spreken Ze Dooch, Rummy?
    Rummy is gone at last, but he’s not forgotten. He has yet to stand trial for his crimes, and it appears that he will do so in a German court of law. Fitting, perhaps, for it was at Nuremberg that the last batch of Nazis were tried. I would much rather he stand trial here, preferably after being frog-marched out of the Pentagon and carted through the streets like the Hunchback of Notre Dame. But I no longer have any faith in our corrupt legal system. In a society where a poor Black man gets the death sentence for murdering one measly family while a rich white man sexually humiliates thousands of innocent Iraqis and walks FREE, one can no longer be assured that the hackysack of justice will be served on a level playing field.

    That's why we so desperately need the International Criminal Court. Under the ICC, American leaders and military personnel who violate the Constitutional rights of suspected terrorists would no longer be permitted to hide behind the U.S. Constitution. It's a Living, Breathing Document, but it wasn't built to withstand the rampant abuses Repugnikkans have been inflicting upon it since Bush stole the election. The poor thing is stretched way too thin. It's high time we let the International Community take over our justice system, so that we can focus the full power of the Bill of Rights on more important matters - like protecting our children from Ten Commandments displays.

    Perhaps one day we will have a President who cares less about U.S. sovereignty than she does about her standing in the court of World Opinion, and Rummy and the entire Bush junta will finally stand before Luis Moreno-Ocampo as our Founding Fathers intended. Until then, we'll have to put our trust in the Germans, a peaceloving people whose long-standing committment to human rights was only briefly interrupted by the unmistakable stench of burning flesh coming from the direction they carted all those meddlesome Jews off to.

    So it would seem that the best case scenario according to the soldiers quoted, would not be a change in number of soldiers in Iraq (maybe an increase but definitely not a decrease), but rather a change in tactics?

    No change in tactics is going to both accomplish the mission in the most efficient manner AND meet poilitical correctness. That's the problem now, and as long as politicians are attempting to please everyone instead of doing what works, it will continue to be the problem, no matter how the troops are deployed.
