Fuck you too, Don.

Rumsfeld had a Q&A session with soldiers in Kuwait. Asked (by a soldier) why soldiers have to sink to scrounging scrap metal from landfills to armor their humvees, his response: "You go to war with the army you have. You can have all the armor in the world on a tank and it can still be blown up."

You prick. You could've said, "Yeah, this sucks. We're trying." You could have said "We want to, but there was so much money, and we though we needed to cover X and Y and Z first." X, Y, and Z being reasonably higher-priority items. But no, he just blows the guy off. You cannot convince me that this guy, or his boss, actually cares about these grunts. This speech, and Shrub's appearance yesterday locally at Camp Pendleton, were anything more than show.

Let's not forget that a lot of these guys initially deployed last year with no fucking body armor, either. Parents were buying vests to send to their uniformed kids! Off eBay sometimes!
