The only thing I liked about Rumsfeld was his gift for language:

"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones."

Yep.  Even the much maligned  “go to war with the army you have” quote actually made a ton of sense in context.  People just ripped it out of context to score their political points.

You’re disgusting. Like his politics or not, a man died today. He had children, a wife, and family who loved him.

So did all the people who died in Iraq, but I guess they don’t matter because they weren’t white politicians like Donald. 🤔

Eh, I’m gonna side with MishFox on this one.

 

Not because I agree with his assessment of Rumsfeld (I don’t), but because there’s one former President I absolutely plan to celebrate the eventual death of, and if his family doesn’t like it they should probably stay away from my social media account I guess.

Totally your choice, that’s fine.

For me, a good rule of thumb is to try to live your life in a way that nobody would want to celebrate your death.

Most people...the overwhelming majority of humanity, since the beginning of time, manage to live their lives that way.

But some people fail at that, very badly, and at the end of the day their families are better off without them.

Every person in Iraq that was unjustly killed during our fight against the Hussein regime is a tragedy, but don't you dare use their tragedy as political tools, and excuses to attack your political opponents.

General Georges Sada would like to disagree with you.
