Wasted BTUs

"I saw on the ground a sort of walking away from 10 years’ worth of planning. You know, ever since the end of the first Gulf War, there’s been planning by serious officers and planners and others, and policies put in place - 10 years' worth of planning were thrown away. Troop levels dismissed out of hand. Gen. Shinseki basically insulted for speaking the truth and giving an honest opinion." - General Zinni (Retired), via Idiot Lefties, via Andrew Sullivan

Actually, they've convinced me that Rumsfeld should resign and Bush did a bad job. That's why I call them "idiots" and other things that I choose not to type here.

See, for 3 years, we've been dealing with BUSH LIED!!!! Well, to you, but I'm not a gullible moron and I didn't believe the spin. PEOPLES DIED!!!! Yeah, it's a war. NO WAR FOR OIL!!!! We need oil. NOT ENOUGH TROOPS!!!! You're a brainwashed sheep spewing the talking points of your commie puppet masters, who know nothing about the invasion or our military capabilities.

But after a long and irritating three years of ignorance-inspired leftist drivel, someone has actually reported a fact. According to this General Zinni character, we didn't follow the Pentagon's plans. You know how we have carefully prepared plans for every contingency? We didn't follow the one for invading Iraq. That convinces me that Rumsfeld is a bad Secretary of Defense.

If it's true. It sounds true. Bear in mind that all these other military leaders have criticised the war- well, they're entitled to their opinions, but there must obviously be a greater number of military leaders who are actually conducting the war and therefore approve of its conduct.

If any of the anti-war crowd had an IQ above room temperature, maybe they could've dredged this tidbit up earlier and I would've voted for Badnarik instead of Bush. Then Kerry would've won, our soldiers would be home, and world peace would reign forever.

The point is that the complete and utterly mindless banality of the Left has prevented them from applying rational thought for at least a decade, and so the one, simple argument that persuades a hard-core Burkean realist like me wasn't used.

They're completely incapable of attempting to understand any side but their own, or they would have brought this up long ago.

Know thyself, know thy enemy, and you hold the key to victory.
