Let's play interpret the Rumsfield:
"I can't tell you if the use of force in Iraq today will last five days, five weeks or five months, but it won't last any longer than that," he said in an hour-long radio interview for Infinity Broadcasting.
Interpretation:"I can't tell you how long it is, but it won't be any longer than that."
"That our understanding of the relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda is still developing, that there is no question but that there have been interactions between the Iraqi government, Iraqi officials and al Qaeda operatives, they have occurred over a span of some eight or 10 years to our knowledge, that there are currently al Qaeda in Iraq," he said.
Interpretation:"There is a relationship between Iraq and the alQaeda, namely one of hatred, spite, and continual disagreement on everything except the fact that the raghead bastards think the US sucks."
"Absent a dictator, absent the Saddam Hussein regime, our goal would be first to have a single country, not have a country broken up into pieces, it would be to see that it would be a country without weapons of mass destruction, a country that did not try to impose its will upon its neighbors and it was a country that was respectful of the rights of minorities and the ethnic groups that exist in the country," Rumsfeld said.
Intrepretation: "Without a dictator in Iraq, we'd have a unified country nothing at all like the United States."
And if, one caller queried, no weapons of mass destruction were found by U.N. weapons inspectors inside Iraq?
"What it would prove would be that the inspection process had been successfully defeated by the Iraqis," the secretary said. "There's no question but that the Iraqi regime is clever, they've spent a lot of time hiding things, dispersing things, tunneling underground."
Interpreatation: "The dirty ragheads are up to something, and if the inspection can't find it, it's because the bleeding heart leftist homosexuals called the UN created an inspection process that sucks."
All of this from a CNN interview with the chap himself.
As I like to word it: "Someone's lookin' for an ass kicking!"
