Gosh! Let's Fire Rummy

Major General Paul Eaton is a hero of the Bush war in Iraq.  He was in charge of training the new Iraqi army from 2003 to 2004.  He has been called the Father of the Iraqi Army by the Defense Department's own publicity machine.  Not the guy you would immediately associate with an anti-Rumsfeld campaign.  But just read this!

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is not competent to lead our armed forces. First, his failure to build coalitions with our allies from what he dismissively called "old Europe" has imposed far greater demands and risks on our soldiers in Iraq than necessary. Second, he alienated his allies in our own military, ignoring the advice of seasoned officers and denying subordinates any chance for input. 

In sum, he has shown himself incompetent strategically, operationally and tactically, and is far more than anyone else responsible for what has happened to our important mission in Iraq. Mr. Rumsfeld must step down.

And much more.  Give it a read!
