I'm baaack ...

... for a few quick hits.

First, check this out over at SMASH's place ... not only did he really outdo himself this time, I think this post has probably generated more comments than any I have seen from the LCDR. Then, check out this follow-up ... and this one, too.

Second, some thoughts about the Rumsfeld press conference ... a little historical perspective is in order here. Also, the SECDEF is absolutely right ... you never go into battle with the army you want, but the army you have ... for if you wait until you get the army you want, you will probably have already lost. This is truly a case of "the best is the enemy of the good" ... and the sentiments of this soldier -- who now appears to have been coached by an activist-journalist -- are hardly universal.

Memo to the critics -- your criticism on topics like these would be far more credible, if your knees didn't jerk with spasms of "IMPEACH!" and "REMOVE!" at the appearance of each problem like this ... and if you wouldn't try to use each and every problem like this as "proof" that we shouldn't have gone into Iraq in the first place!

More later ... not only about the world, but about what I have been going through in the last week.
