Thanks for the post and the ping. I'm making a file of all the dreadful truths about these RAT candidates.

I cannot believe how much negative it out there about the RAT candidates as I have been researching Kerry and now this comes up about Clark!

There was no rationale for our involvement in the Balkans. No vital American interest was at stake. This wasn't our fight. It still isn't. Consequently, what troops we have over there should be pulled out and redeployed to sites reconcilable with national security priorities.

Bingo X! Great find indeed! Having seen the little PPP general bristle at hard questions, the word mercurial fits him like a tailor made suit. His record does not bode well nor does his future.

"Through dealings with Yugoslavia that date back to 1994, Clark's propensity for mistakes has kept him in trouble while he continued moving up the chain of command thanks to a patron in the Oval Office."

&

"Clark is the perfect model of a 1990s political four-star general. Clark's rapid promotions after Dayton--winning his fourth star to head the Panama-based Southern Command and then the jewel of his European post--were both opposed by the Pentagon brass. But Clark's fellow Arkansan in the White House named him anyway. The president [Clinoccio] and the general are collaborators in a failed strategy whose consequences cast a long shadow even if soon terminated by negotiation."

During Clintigula's 8 year reign, most self respecting officers & EMs who could retire were retiring/ETS'g due to their distaste for the Liberal-Socialist CIC.

But not this guy.

No, such a sad development apparently was percieved as an "opportunity knocking" by a sorry opportunist.

...such as this Liberal-Socialist presidential wannabe.

We won the 1999 war against Serbia and we achieved its aim--sending its genocidal nazi President to prison in the Hague and freeing the people of Kosova from the threat of the kind of GENOCIDE they committed against the Muslims of Bosnia at Srebrenica.

Yes, that bad genocide that only produce 2,500 bodies in all "mass graves" and funny thing, half of them Serb and Roma...and since your friends the loveling Albanians take over, more then 5,000 peoples murdered or missing and new insurgency in Makedonia and stirrings of Greece. Yes and NATO only kill some 3,000 civilians too...oh but most Christians so your islamic handlers happy.

Shilling for Islam, the Ronly legacy....you and Fusion soul mates.

Hmmm, let us try again:

"When I ordered our armed forces into combat, we had three clear goals: to enable the Kosovar people, to ethnically exterminate all Christians and Jews from area, to run drugs and slaves to prime markets in Europe and America. To allow islamic foothold and insurgency in Makedonia and to later in Greece. To show Islamics we fellow travellers. To put Russia's Yeltsin firmly in pocket with wallet. To make me master of planet....

You are so right! I know a lot of military that got out during those years. All you had to do was watch the Defense Budget Hearings before Senate Armed Services to know that Clinton had bought and paid for a lot of Generals that did stay. One exception was General Michael Ryan, USAF Chief of Staff. He didn't toe the Clinton line that the Air Force had enough money and Cohen or Shelton were unable to get him to stop telling the Senators the truth about lack of resources in the Air Force and why. Of course the why included Clinton's overseas trips that he never paid the Air Force for like that junket to Africa with all those people and all those C-17's to carry all the cargo.

At the time I never heard of political correctness but after seeing what you just wrote, I think it started then when they changed the name Viet Cong to N. Vietnamese regular. Wonder why it changed and who changed the name?

No, no , Vietcong seperate political organization then N. Vietnemes Communists...they fight for more or less same goal. Hoe Chimen force Vietcong into Tet Offensive because he know that while psychological victory, Vietcong become destroyed...he want this because he knew he will win war and did not want other political party existing.

Thanks for the ping...
a caller to the Hugh Hewitt Show told a good anecdote that could apply to Weasely Clark.
(the caller claimed to have served at the level of general in the military).
Here is my parapharse:

General A: How did General Confusion ever get to be a general? He's such a
moron and a loose cannon!
General B: OH! I KNOW how Confusion got to be a general all right!
The real question is how did Confusion get to be a lieutenant!?
