Suck it up, motherfuckers!

Or something like that:

CAMP BUEHRING, Kuwait (AP) – Disgruntled U.S. soldiers complained to Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld on Wednesday about the lack of armor for their vehicles and long deployments, drawing a blunt retort from the Pentagon chief. […]

“Why do we soldiers have to dig through local landfills for pieces of scrap metal and compromised ballistic glass to uparmor our vehicles?” Wilson asked. A big cheer arose from the approximately 2,300 soldiers in the cavernous hangar who assembled to see and hear the secretary of defense.

Rumsfeld hesitated and asked Wilson to repeat his question. […]

Rumsfeld replied that troops should make the best of the conditions they face and said the Army was pushing manufacturers of vehicle armor to produce it as fast as humanly possible.

This is the part of the post where we are reminded of this Get Your War On cartoon.

god bless GYWO, and god bless you.

…goddamn rumsfield…


I guess he’s at the age where the “Who am I? Why are all these army men persecuting me? Why is there a microphone in my face? Who crapped in my pants and then made me put on the pants with the crap in them?” routine is semi-credible.


Rumsfeld then went on to say “I support our troops and I’m tired of you people helping the enemy by being critical of the war!”


The Real Rummy:

Quityer whining and go out there and kill some swarthy folks for your flag, Preznit and Halliburton. What do y’all think this is, a welfare program and a vacation for soldiers? This is a war and people are supposed to die in it.


When I think about our troops in the field, putting their lives on the line defending our freedom against the threat of Saddam’s MWDs and his Islamo-Facists I get a lump in my throat and start to tear up (well, actually, I don’t “tear” up exactly – that would be pretty faggy. It’s more like I get really, really serious and stare off into space thoughtfully; I’m deep that way).

Anyway, when I think of our brave boys and girls fighting and dying and forcing the ragheads to form naked pyramids I realize how important it is to support their efforts – at least the efforts of our troops who don’t piss and moan about poor training and inadequate weapons and bad food and unreasonably dangerous conditions and no body armor and all of that pussy bullshit. Seriously, those dudes and dudettes are traitors, fucking traitors of the worst sort. I’ll bet they even faked most of those “injuries” that they said was caused by all that shit they were complaining about. They’re just medal whores if you ask me. “Waaahhh, my unarmored Humvee was hit by an RPG and I lost my foot, waaahh, give me a Purple Heart!” God that shit makes me want to puke. What a bunch of crybabies.

If my girlfriend has had let me join the military and if I had lost 100 pounds and survived boot camp and not been too old to go and then if I had somehow been sent to Iraq even though I was in the Coast Guard I wouldn’t complain one bit, not one stinking goddamn bit. And I’d have come home with medals, lots and lots of medals and they would hold a parade for me on Main Street. A big parade with fire engines and floats and clowns throwing candy to the huge crowds that showed up just to see me.

That would be sweet.


…uh, OK, that WAS pretty deep….

I just can’t wait until the parades when the clowns throw Rummy to crowd. Now THAT would be sweet!


…or the crowd throws Rummy to the clowns…


Am I the only one who can’t get the GYWO link to work?


Q: “Why do we soldiers have to dig through local landfills for pieces of scrap metal and compromised ballistic glass to uparmor our vehicles?”

A: Tax cuts!

You got your tax cut just like everybody else, Sergeant, so get out there and help the economy by spending it.

Get on eBay and buy yourself some extra armor and ballistic glass, you friggin’ crybaby.

WTF are you waiting for, you goddam liberal traitor?
