Count me as one that has some concerns of the value of bombing Syria but the last person I want to hear from on the subject is former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
He is part of the trio that led us with lies into a war in Iraq that cost over 5,000 American lives. By the way, the very Iraq which now supports the gassing of Syria's citizens and is assisting in keeping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power! Secretary Rumsfeld is responsible much of the chaos, terrorism and deadly bombings that is currently taking place in the Middle East.
Politico reports that the former Bush Defense Secretary proclaimed on Fox News:
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says the Obama administration has not yet justified an attack on Syria.
“There really hasn’t been any indication from the administration as to what our national interest is with respect to this particular situation,” Rumsfeld told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto on Wednesday.
“If you think of what’s really important in that region, it’s two things,” he added. “It’s Iran’s nuclear program and the relationship between Iran and Syria, the Assad regime, with respect to funding terrorists that go around killing innocent men, women and children including Americans.”
Asked what he thinks China and Russia’s response may be — both countries have said the U.S. must abide by international law, wait for the United Nations chemical probe results, and should not bypass the U.N. Security Council — Rumsfeld replied, “Well, it’s hard to know.”
“I mean there’s no question that each of those two countries, the People’s Republic of China and Russia, have leaders that are fundamentally opposed to our values and our interests,” he said.
So Mr. Rumsfeld, your lies cost this nation greatly. Many fathers and mothers have lost their sons and daughters because of your deceit. Some even believe you should be tried for war crimes. As for me, I just want you to quietly disappear into the sunset and most of all, "Shut the F**K Up!"
