U.S. Gaining World's Respect From Wars, Rumsfeld Asserts

Saturday, March 12, 2005

Rummy "upheld the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan yesterday as powerful demonstrations of U.S. military prowess that will make other countries think twice about making "mischief" around the world."

"Mischief" ? TP'ing the bushes around the White House? "Other countries"? Well the real issue is not countries and their leaders. They look at their own survival as a ruling class first. But let's look at the general population of countries. Has our power stopped the "insurgents" in Iraq? Has it stopped Bin Laden?

"Rumsfeld was asked about a potential military threat from China. He said this year's Quadrennial Defense Review -- a major rethinking of U.S. military strategy -- would plan long-range weapons systems "with respect to China and other circumstances that can change dramatically." China? Now we have plans for China - after Syria, Iran, North Korea, Russia.... More and more W is becoming our own little "Napoleon" - not short in stature but short in vision and decency.
