The Man With A "Plan"
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is, and has been, under fire because of the way he has waged the war in Iraq by the left and even a few people on the right. Of course his critics have all been brilliant military strategists in their own right. The most vocal critic of note was John
L. F. Kerry who got his military education at the revered Yale Military Institute and subsequently rose through the ranks to become one of the most famous lieutenants in American history with a command of nearly 20 people under him.
During the recent elections Kerry said over and over and over and over... that he had a plan to help us win the war in Iraq. Since Rumsfeld and the inept military minds at the Pentagon are having such a tough time coming up with a 'plan' of their own to win the war as fast as his critics would like, I suggest that ex-Lieutenant Kerry offer his services and his 'plan' (gratis to be sure since Kerry is already on the payroll of the United States as Senator from Massachusetts) to the Secretary of Defense. I am sure with Kerry's 'plan' we can win the war in the next week or two with no further casualties and bring our boys back home victorious.
(Substitute John 'Monday Morning Quarterback' McCain for ‘Kerry’ in the above musing if you would like. I’m sure he could also win the war in no time. Senator McCain’s military skills were honed during the Vietnam war by his instructors at the Hanoi Hilton. Senator McCain, with even fewer men under his command than Senator Kerry during his illustrious military career, was instrumental in planning as many as ZERO (0) major offensives and won no fewer than ZERO (0) major battles with his brilliant military strategies.)
