" WE'LL BOMB EM' BACK TO THE STONE AGE "
This just came over the wires.....
From the man who's not Santa Claus :
"Rumsfeld, after that closed-door meeting, said the Pentagon was considering a plan to replace the nuclear warheads on some intercontinental ballistic missiles with conventional weapons, a move that would make the missiles less lethal and therefore more conceivable for politicians to use in preemptive strikes against terrorist groups."......Rumsfeld eyes ICBMs in terror war

As I read Cobra II, one little factoid jumped out at me. Remember all the targeted air strikes that were conducted to get various members in that famous card deck, not one worked. In fact, until al-Zarqawi we were 0 for 50. In 1966, for example, U.S. aircraft flew 81,000 attack sorties and 48,000 combat-support sorties against North Vietnam; in the panhandle of Laos there were 48,000 attack sorties and 10,000 combat-support sorties. Vietnam remains the most heavily bombed place on the planet. Today, that shrimp in your scampi at "Joe's Crab Shack" comes from Vietnam.
This news that Rummy let slip is not good. It will make far easier for Cheney to prod our pinhead president into striking Iran. Then 135,000 Americans will be at the end of 300 kilometer rope strung from the Kuwait border to "Camp Victory". And on every meter of it will be one of Muqtada al-Sadar's boy's standing there with a knife.
