Out of touch

WASHINGTON (April 14) - The widening circle of retired generals who have stepped forward to call for Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's resignation is shaping up as an unusual outcry that could pose a significant challenge to Mr. Rumsfeld's leadership, current and former generals said on Thursday.

Retired Two-Star General Charles Swannack, the commander who led the elite 82nd Airborne Division during its mission in Iraq, has joined the chorus of retired generals calling on Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to leave the Pentagon.

My Grandfather was a Lieutenant Colonel in the 82nd Airborne. He was younger than I am now when he died. He fought and died alongside his troops at The Battle of the Bulge. Otherwise, I am sure he too would have made general after the war.

There is no room for incompetence anymore. The lives of American soldiers are too important to be in the hands of someone who is this ineffective. Every day, it becomes more obvious that President Bush is not the only miserable failure in this administration.

Time to step down Donald. Go find something more useful to do with your hands. I have some suggestions.

But it's up to Bush to decide... He's the "Decider."
Get ready for Bush and Donald to be around for a long time after he drops the big one on Iran. He can't leave office during a time of nuclear crisis on the scale of conflict that will eschew. After all he is a “war” president.
