Mr. Fish has been swimming in the toxic sludge for a long time. Those that nibble at his excrement should be aware of the consequence.

I’m with Mr. Fish on this one! I happened to see rumzfield being questioned by a reporter as to wheather getting rid of saddam was worth all the loss of life by Iraqies and American troops. “Oh Yes” he exclaimed “Well worth it”. All the dead children were someone elses children. All the dead in the houses his bombs flatebed were nonpersons to him. Their lives have no value to him so of course it is worth it to him and people like him. The reporter should have asked him how many of his family he would sacrifice to the endeavor. Moreover this criminal administration has sought to deprive their advesaries of any standing. They say detainees have no rights—that anyone they label as an enemy looses all their constitutional rights,they become nonpersons. THIS IS THE SAME DEVICE THAT THE NAZIS USED TO DEPRIVE THEIR ENEMIES OF ANY STANDING TO SEEK JUDICIAL RELIEF FROM THE GOVERNMENT. He is someone that thinks so highly of himself and & his leader that he is willing to commit any crime, perpetrate any injustice and as Mr. Fish points out KILL ANY NUMBER OF AMERICAN CHILDREN & YOUNG ADULTS to accomplish something that he himself does not believe in—-He only believes in his high calling. Its a military occupational mental disease. He is only following the wishes of his superiors who have been kind (stupid) enough to entrust him with such a high mission. Thats who he is-a suck-up MONSTER

It is so funny that Mr. Fish placed a ‘Razorfish’ cap on Rummy. For those of you who don’t remember,
Razorfish was one of the Dot Com companies of the late 1990’s that was expected to take over the worlds of business, media and culture. They expanded very quickly, and imploded just as quickly. Yet for awhile, many were fooled, sort of like Rummy, ‘eh?

JLS, what system is that?
The one that took away all your rights as a citizen of the USA and made you venerable to the whims of whoever is in office…..or had you noticed that? Or maybe you think it applies only to THEM?
Or is it the system that made it legal to put you in jail, tell no one, torture you, either to the point of grevious bodily harm, or organ failure, depending on who is decider that day?
Or is it the system that has spent your grandchildren´s college money to do mass murder?
Please explain to me which system you expect to fix this, because I have been on this earth a long damned time and I sure as hell don´t know about it and have not seen it work in my lifetime.

Mr. Rummy or dummy didn’t do his job? I’m not so sure about that.
A. What military complex as great and as advanced as the United States would ever consider attacking another Nation without a master plan for victory?
B. Why would the USA construct huge ultra modern military bases in an invaded country?
C. Why would they invade a small helpless country in the first place?
D. Why did they find it necessary to lie to the world about the urgent need to attack so quickly?
E. Who stood to gain the most financially by the invasion? And who developed the private and secret energy policy (supposedly for this country)?
It’s smells like the master plan was to never win and to never leave, at least while there was oil in the ground.
Maybe the master plan was to keep a minor little struggle going on and on and on for years! One or two or three dead Americans a month and who would even notice.
And who is pocketing billions and billions of dollars in profits by staying there?
If containment was Rummy’s orders, it just got terribly out of hand!

Just sad. the response comments really seem to just validate the point I obviously to failed make. Everyone is so pissed off and hateful that it would seem really difficult to make any progress. I know, I know, “Rumsfeld is gone, THAT is progress!” Maybe, but it really just says that the “system” can work.
I guess the fact that we can all disagree is a good sign. Not a great one, but good…

Dummy, must now face the Music.
Torture, including murder, are frowned upon by most ‘civilized’ people (at least those living outside the US).
Rumsfeld and Gonzalez, among others are to be tried in Germany, for their crimes against Humanity.
It is my hope, that Dick Cheney and George W., will have to stand in court to account for their crimes as well.

At least he’s free to advertise, most guys who have done what this war criminal has done, would be on trial for mass murder.

He thrives on bloodshed. What would his life be without “collateral damange” aka mass killings?
Keep your children away, far away, from this vampire.

Did not succeed at his job!!??
He was blindingly, mind-numbingly ruthless and incompetent.
Hitler was committed to Germany and gave more of himself than most Germans. So i guess that means we should have been nice to him too?
I think we ought to encourage the legal wheels to turn and make the rest of Rummy’s life a living hell.

THIS picture is exactly what is wrong with the media, government and people in general. KNOCK IT OFF! OK, the guy did not succeed at his job but he did put himself out there to face the constant criticism, both personal and professional and the personal SHOULD be out of bounds, while everyone else takes cheap shots from the cheap seats.
WHAT PLANET DO YOU LIVE ON? SOMEONE PLANS FOR 3 DECADES TO BE ABLE TO KILL YOUR SON OR GRANDSON AND FINALLY DOES IT AND YOU SAY HE WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL AT HIS JOB? SEEMED PRETTY DAMNED SUCCESSFUL TO ME. OH! YOU MEAN HE DID NOT WIN HIS WAR? KINDLY EXPLAIN WHAT WINNING WOULD BE. WOULD IT HAVE BEEN BETTER TO DO WHAT POWELL SAID AND SEND IN OVERWHELMING FORCE AND KILL EVERYBODY? WELL, IT CERTAINLY WORKED WHEN WE TOOK THE US FROM THE INDIANS, BUT YOU SEE, EVEN AS ADDLED AS RUMDUM AND CO WERE, THEY KNEW THAT OVERT GENOCIDE WOULD NOT PLAY IN PEORIA. WHAT THEY FAILED TO SEE WAS THAT THEY MAY PISS THE IRAQI PEOPLE OFF IF THEY ATTACKED THEIR COUNTRY AND TRIED TO TAKE THEIR OIL. IMAGINE THAT!

Wake up and smell the GD caffee people…
He (see above) ‘did not succeed at his job’ give it a rest. Not only did he not succeed at his job, he screwed up royally on all fronts. A nasty, dishonest piece of work by ANY standards.

I don’t know about you, but since I stopped getting my morning briefings from the NSA, CIA and FBI, I have no idea what all the true facts are. And in Washington, in our “Representative Republic”, I doubt that even the President has ALL the facts.
While I certainly have not agreed with the execution of the war, I do believe that Donald Rumsfeld is committed to the United States. He has certainly given more of himself than most anyone who reads this.
I DO know that he is a fellow citizen and for that alone he deserves at least a modicum of courtesy if not respect. Apparently even common courtesy is but a lost memory of better days past.
Pretty sad when Rodney King is my source of aspirational inspriation; “Can’t we all just get along?”
Here’s a challenge for everyone; Try being nice for 9 months and see if things don’t start getting better. Let’s stay focused and not revel in the failings of our fellow citizens.
Ya, like that is going to happen.

I only wish he had drawn a whole series:
those people are no more journalists than Bush is a statesman.
Just a bunch of thugs and loud mouths who try to ridicule anything that’s not part of their narrow view.

How fitting that Rumsfeld cartoon is.
Bye - Bye Rummy.
