House, Senate Democrats write Bush on Iraq, Rumsfeld (Guest Post by Noise)

We also think there is one additional measure you can take immediately to demonstrate that you recognize the problems your policies have created in Iraq and elsewhere –consider changing the civilian leadership at the Defense Department. From the failure to deploy sufficient numbers of troops at the start of the war or to adequately equip them, to the prison abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib, to disbanding the Iraqi military, to the failure to plan for the post-war occupation, the Administration's mistakes have taken a toll on our troops and our security. It is unacceptable to dismiss the concerns of military personnel and their families when they are affected by the consequences of these failures, as the Secretary of Defense recently did in Alaska by suggesting that volunteers should not complain about having their deployments extended. While a change in your Iraq policy will best advance our chances for success, we do not believe the current civilian leadership at the Department of Defense is suited to implement and oversee such a change in policy. Full text of letter

Pretty good letter. Of course, the "mistakes" (sorry but the word 'mistake' doesn't do justice to the consequences of the Bush occupation policy) INCLUDE Bush. The Dems should call on Bush to resign. No investigations, no impeachment trials, just a quick dishonorable resignation along with the resignations of Cheney and the entire Bush Cabinet.

As well as his resignation could we perhaps make him run down the centre of two lines of people while we all kick him up the backside?

i third it. i think they have these laws though (not that i give a shit, but still).

Lucyp said...

Damn, the law about hurting dumb animals. I forgot about that one.

Lucyp, I'll hire Oldschool to petition the Court for a waiver of that particular law in this case. Seems to be appropriate somehow . . .

Noise, I think you have done an excellent job keeping the pot stirred around here while Lukery has been off visiting. Thank you!

Lucyp - lol.

from Lucyp's website: "I'm a... pacifist... vehemently against blood sports"

perhaps we could make him run down the centre of two lines of people with Babs chases him into oblivion. watching his humiliation - sans kicking - would be fun enough ;-)

(although i wouldnt begrudge anyone who wantd to throw a rotten tomato or two)

AFAIC, he knows no 'humiliation.'
