Why Thomas Friedman is an ignorant SHIT HEAD.
Because he has the shit for brains to actually call for Rumsfeld's resignation instead of actually proffering his own. This embarrassment of humanity did more to cause, start and cheer-lead the NeoCon's runaway train than almost any other US journalist. At least Judith Miller knows when to shut her yap.

Tom Freidman needs to be canned and put on the defective merchandise shelf. Here's his latest excuse for existence.

For a good laugh read this shit, but keep a vomit bag handy.



Restoring Our Honor (start with your own, TOM)
By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN

Published: May 6, 2004


We are in danger of losing something much more important than just the war in Iraq. We are in danger of losing America as an instrument of moral authority and inspiration in the world. I have never known a time in my life when America and its president were more hated around the world than today. I was just in Japan, and even young Japanese dislike us. It's no wonder that so many Americans are obsessed with the finale of the sitcom "Friends" right now. They're the only friends we have, and even they're leaving.

This administration needs to undertake a total overhaul of its Iraq policy; otherwise, it is courting a total disaster for us all.

That overhaul needs to begin with President Bush firing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld today, not tomorrow or next month, today. What happened in Abu Ghraib prison was, at best, a fundamental breakdown in the chain of command under Mr. Rumsfeld's authority, or, at worst, part of a deliberate policy somewhere in the military-intelligence command of sexually humiliating prisoners to soften them up for interrogation, a policy that ran amok.

Blah, blah Blah blah!

1. FU, Tommy boy
This guy has absolutely no connection with reality. His little cherished seed of democracy called the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq - so noble and honorable in his sick mind - is now sprouting into the noxious weed we and the world all knew it was. Reality bites, huh Tommy?

2. The policy didn't run amok. They thought it was running fine.
That's why they took pictures.

And right now I would like more pictures. I want to know what's happening EVERYWHERE we are detaining human beings.
