Top US general says Rumsfeld is inspired by God

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20061019/pl_afp/usmilitaryp...


-snip-

"He leads in a way that the good Lord tells him is best for our country," said Marine General Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Rumsfeld is "a man whose patriotism focus, energy, drive, is exceeded by no one else I know ... quite simply, he works harder than anybody else in our building," Pace said at a ceremony at the Southern Command (Southcom) in Miami.

-snip-

He comes to work everyday with a single-minded focus to make this country safe," said Stavridis who was a senior aide to Rumsfeld before taking on the Southcom job.

"We're lucky as a nation that he continues to serve with such passion and such integrity and such determination and such brilliance," said Stavridis, 51.

As head of Southcom, Stavridis will be responsible for military cooperation with Latin American countries, and will be in charge of the Guantanamo US military base in Cuba where more than 400 "war on terror" detainees are being held.

pardon me while I puke on prissy Pace and dangerously insane Stavridis

3. Even the majority of US soldiers despise peter pace.
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 11:53 AM by LynnTheDem
At least with his continuing to blather on to the "media" the majority of Americans will easily see why the majority of US soldiers think pace is a dipshit moran of an asshole.

5. Gag choke and vomit - policy by divine intervention is way over
the top. These people must be pandering. Even they cannot be taking this drivel seriously.

11. Passionate, Intense, and Unwavering are only virtues when...
...they don't precede "stupidity" or "incompetence".

Maybe those generals will next explain how relying on an "everything goes perfectly according to plan" scenario and operating for extended periods without sufficient personnel and equipment became sound military doctrine instead of a classic recipie for disaster?

17. "We're lucky"? Who's "we"?
All kidding aside, this is what happens when an entire nation ignores mental health issues.

18. Has he been helping to 'clear' those afghani pot forests perhaps?
Because that's the only explanation for holding that belief.
