WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Leaving Iraq now would be like handing postwar Germany back to the Nazis, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in a column published on Sunday, the third anniversary of the start of the Iraq war.
So, the insurgents are Nazis now? WTF, over. By the way, Gen. George Patton used the Nazis to rebuild Germany!
Rumsfeld's view was that the Iraqi insurgency was failing.
"The terrorists seem to recognize that they are losing in Iraq. I believe that history will show that to be the case," he wrote.
And the insurgency has been losing for 3 years now.
