Q: How many troops will be needed to occupy Iraq after the war?
Shinseki: Uuuuh..it would probably take...uuhhh....several....hundred thousand.
This numbskull probably doesn't even know how many troops are under his command. His answer came from where most of his decisions come from - his ass.
In retrospect, perhaps the general was NOT an imbecile. Shame on you, I hope you are man enough to admit you were wrong.
