And so many people have decided against the war JUST BECAUSE OF THE GENERALS THE MEDIA HAVE ROUNDED UP to gainsay Rumsfield and thePresident. Had a friend say just today (a Republican) that she wished Bush had dumped Rumsfield earlier--he must have been bad because so many military, esp. general officers have said so. I informed her that a handful of handpicked generals, now retired, had said so, but that there are hundreds of active duty generals as well as hundreds of retired. They could find many, many more generals who respected Rumsfield and the President. However, that would not fit the Dem/lib/media/celib agenda. People tend to believe there are only a very few generals.
Also, people don't know or forget that many in the military had their pet projects thwarted by Rummie as he updated the military complex.
It's always disheartening to hear other wise intelligent people echo DSM talking points. Goebbel's big lie in action.
Right. And therein lies the root cause of much of the criticism Rumsfeld and Bush have been getting from the retired desk jockey brass, aided and encouraged of course by the MSM traitors.
The supposedly antiwar DemoRats and media whores don't really care about the war, or whether or not we can work out a solution for Iraq, or how many Americans and innocent Iraqis die trying. They're only obsessed with regaining the power they lost beginning with Gingrich and the Contract with America that prevented the Clintons getting everything that they and the other Rats wanted during the last 6 years of their reign of deceit, lies, and outright treason.
I truly believe that many, no make that most, of the traitorous Rat/MSM combine would sell our country out to the most dangerous enemy we have if that treachery would get them the power trip they so desperately crave. In fact, Clinton did sell out his country to it's enemy by selling highly classified missile guidance technology to Red China for campaign money.
I'm very much afraid that the US has survived and triumphed over 2 centuries worth of foreign enemies only to be brought down by it's own domestic enemies who hate everything good, right, and decent that America has stood for and fought for over those two centuries.
I read an article where someone had figured out that it amounted to something like 1/1000 of retired and active generals. 4700 retired and 900 active

It's incomplete now though.
