Whitehouse finds ‘war czar’

Pictured above: Field Marshall Erwin Rommel

In an associated press article released May 16, 2007 it was announced George W. Bush had found a nominee “…to oversee the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan as a ‘war czar’”. The article goes on to state the following:
“The White House has sought a war coordinator to eliminate conflicts among the Pentagon, the State Department and other agencies – and to speak for the president at times.”

The articles gives the title of the new position as “assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for Iraq and Afghanistan policy and implementation”. Try and fit THAT on a business card. I don’t know anything about the president’s nominee, for the position which will require confirmation by the United States Senate – that is not the point. The point is that the president is in the process of appointing his own little “Reichsmarschall” to oversee a war that he started and no one else wants. It is a war over started over non-existent weapons of mass destruction in a country named Iraq that had nothing whatsoever to do with the horrifying events of “911”. It is a war in which even those members of the GOP that normally supported him, have said they will no longer support him if there are no changes in Iraq by September. So my suggestion is to not bother with a position with a title that is 16 words long. Call it what it is George W. and above you have my recommendation for it. None other than Field Marshall Erwin Rommel of the Third Reich – posthumously of course.
