whoo hoo! Go Army!

Anyhow. Im glad he is stepping down. I fail to see any mentioning of when he will be officially out and when the new secretary of defense will be put in.

I've never heard of Robert Gates, but from the article he looks qualified enough (and that's quite a policy jump for the Bush administration). Let's hope he can do better than RUmsfeld.

The republicans got their asses handed to them. Today is a glorious day indeed for the entire world. Bush can no longer pass his idiot measures through congress without a fight, and probably loss. Bush is now in a position of ineffectiveness. America has won today.

Wrong don, American has lost today. There were TERRORISTS organizations around the world that would hail a democrat victory as a win for them becuase the democrats are weak on Security.

I personally feel we are now im worst danger than before

Bullshit. Warhawk policies are the reason terrorists groups exist out there to harm us in the first place. If we would just keep our troops and business out of the middle east, we would not be in the situations we are in now with terrorists. The republicans have done nothing but add fuel to a raging, stupid fire. The republicans with their mass stupidity have done nothing but piss off every single country in the world while simultaneously raping the Middle East for profit. Understanding this is the key to America remaining a super power. The republicans are dangerous to everyone, not just Americans.

While this is good, I don't think it matters much. Nothing meaningful will result from it. They both come from the same basket, if you ask me. Our foreign policy at large won't change much, even without Rumsfeld, and even with a Democrat majority in congress.

You'd be mistaken if you thought that US hegemony only applies to Republican administrations. It's been happening for over a century, and both parties have just as much blood on their hands as the other.

America's foreign policy is why it is "under attack". Not because US soldiers haven't killed enough infedels.

Nope. The diehards actually do want to impose Islamic law on everyone. What our millitary intervention does is make it possible for them to recruit some Muslims who might otherwise have been modeerates to their cause.

And what millitary intervention are we talking about here? Afghanistan was 100% justified, and almost all American would agree with that. And in Iraq it is the insurgents doing most of the killing. Getting pissed at us for what THEY are doing to THEMSELVES? I've come to the conclusion that the Iraqis are fucknig retarded.
