Rumsfeld hints at greater military ties

Items compiled from Tribune news services
Published June 5, 2006

HANOI, VIETNAM -- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Sunday that the United States wants to expand its military relationship with Vietnam but has no plans to seek access to military facilities with this former enemy.

Arriving in Hanoi just days after the United States signed a trade agreement with Vietnam, Rumsfeld planned to meet with the U.S. military team involved in finding and identifying the remains of hundreds of U.S. servicemen still missing in action from the Vietnam war.

En route to Hanoi, Rumsfeld talked only generally about his goals for the U.S. military relationship with Vietnam.

"I don't have a wish list" he said, "I had so many liberals in my hair, I just needed to get out of town, and I know this trip will piss off the Chinese, so win-win."

Rummy then smiled gaily and then ran into Hotel Nam to binge on Hot Cheetos and wine coolers. He has a war to run and an ex-enemy to woo.

Runny looks like he's just leaving the set of Dynasty, wearing Linda Evan's wig. I wonder what kind of dress he's wearing. Something off the shoulders, I see.

Well finally Runny made it to Vietnam. But only after all the shooting is over, so he's still just a chicknhawk.

Glenda,

You have such a keen eye for the photo! You choose some of the most telling, even unrelated, pictures and they seem to speak so loudly of the topic. I commend you on your artistic inclinations...

Sweet... :>)

Aw, thanks. Linda Trip? Linda Evans? What a hoot, since linda means pretty in Spanish. and what, wasn't rummy nominated as one of the years most handsome republicans a few years ago?
Thanks, poetryman, it's flash inspiration, but the material they hand us to work with every day is so distorted, it's pretty easy to distort even further.

Glenda, please hand over the photo-shop software. I shouldn't have to be exposed to these violent images this early in the morning.

Kept trying to get in here yesterday, but Blogger was being a fusspot. Just the idea of Dumbfeld "gaily" doing anything is funny. Wish he were MIA - permanently.

And as the ever-caddish Cheney said about Kerry, "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig."

Yeah, Blogger has been a turkey lately, no reference to the break-in at TBR.

A Vietnamese prostitute was quoted as saying to Rummy before the slipped through a back alley, "me love you long time."
