OK, you know what? The comment which Rumsfeld made is the sum total of the Bush administration's chicken hawk ideology: tough talk which is complete, insensitive, bullshit. And which has no relationship to reality and which someone should have called them on long ago.
When that whole bullshit on 'gravitas' was going on, someone should have said "You know, you people are so full of yourselves that you can't see a fucking thing in the real world, and are leading us down a path to destruction based solely on your ego tripping, and cute slogans and latin words which sound sophisticated or macho."
But they didn't, and instead we have Mr. bedside manner demonstrating just what lengths his idiocy goes to.
Which include, it seems, telling people getting their asses blown off in Iraq that they should just buck up.
