Gates said, and I got this from 20 different sources so take your pick..
"Robert Gates assumed the helm at the Pentagon on Monday, warning in his first public remarks as defense secretary that failure in Iraq would be a "calamity" that would haunt the United States for years."
WTF does that mean? It's such a damn vague statement.Then, WaPo has this direct quote from his swearing in speech-i-fying:
"But as the president has made clear, we simply cannot afford to fail in the Middle East. Failure in Iraq at this juncture would be a calamity that would haunt our nation, impair our credibility, and endanger Americans for decades to come."
Christ, Fuck you Gates, your the same bag of batshit, but in a different suit. As long as you mention our young men and women in the same paragraph, you get by with this shit..don't ya dude?
Our credibility is in the shitter dude..wake up and smell the car bomb ok? We are endangering American's for decades to come by continuing this friggin worthless war that has cost us billions upon billions of bucks. Who is going to pay for this horseshit? How many more dead will you guys rationalize to accomplish your misssion?
fuck you Gates..long and hard.
