The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Rumsfeld Incompetency Watch

Ronald Dumsfeld made the news again...

He told reporters to "just back off" when they asked him to explain the most recent "setbacks" in Iraq (like the raging civil war).

"You ought to just back off..." he whined.

Hmmm... yes. Just back off and wait to see if this administration can do anything right, because let's face it, their record of achievement so far in Iraq (as well as the rest of the world) is simply amazing to behold.

Why doesn't someone in the "press" hold this a-hole's feet to the fire???

All they would have to do is cite a number of administration quotes like "Mission Accomplished", "insurgency in its last throes", "days or weeks, I doubt months", "dead-enders", "stay the course", etc, then point out that these great quotes all came at great times for the administration and were touted to the American public as evidence that we were winning or had won this damn war. Remember, this is the WAR PRESIDENT we are talking about. The war is the primary reason he won reelection: can't change corpses in mid-stream or somesuch nonsense.

Anyway, the fact that we're spending close to half a trillion dollars on this mess, the fact that we're losing three or four soldiers a day, the fact that the Iraqis are losing 100 or more civilians a day, the fact that we're embroiled in the middle of a civil war with no real allies -- all of these facts should mean that "back off" is not an acceptable response by any stretch of the imagination.

Such a level of incompetence in the whitehorse has not been seen for decades, if ever. How dare Dumsfeld refuse to answer serious questions about his competence and the competence of the Boosh Adminstration???

I've been watching for almost six years now, and I have yet to see even a glimmer of competence.
