Rumsfeld honored at Pentagon ceremony

By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer 23 minutes ago

Architect of the unpopular war in Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was praised lavishly for his service to the nation Friday as he called on Americans to spend more heavily on defense.

President Bush called Rumsfeld "one of America's most skilled, energetic and dedicated public servants."

"We've been through war together," the president said. "We have shared some of the most challenging moments in our nation's history."

"This man knows how to lead and he did," the president said. "And the country is better off for it"

1. "Spend more heavily on defense???"
And don't put the figures in the U. S. budget. Don't spend wisely and judiciously, just spend more. And this is what your "conservative" neighbors love and support.

2. "We've been through war together,"
No, you've been through killing tens of thousands of living, breathing human beings from the safety of your pig farm, you sick bastard.
