Rummys Gone

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by crabtastic, Nov 8, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. AP just started reporting that Rumsfeld is stepping down.

    Bush going before the cameras at 1800Z.
     
  2. Good. Now bang the speedkuffs on him.
     
  3. I knew at the time I should have shot his Herc down at Basra Airport in May 03. Fcuking dirty fingered tw@t. He is part of the problem.
     
  4. If the Democrats win the Senate, apparently they can call for any inquiry on any subject. May I humbly suggest a full and independent inquiry into every aspect of this tw@t's behaviour over the last 3 decades?


    They may turn up some pretty unsavoury details, particularly around the months and years running up to 9/11.
     
  5. President set to make a 'major announcement' at 1800 EST I think?

    Not sure if it's Von Rumsfeld, or announcing an investigation.

    Virginia may go legal. FFS , relying on the GOP Judges again in Supreme?
     
  6. Robert Gates (Daddy's DCI and current President of Texas A&M University) is expected to be nominated as his replacement.
     
  7. deleted
     
  8. Bush eating crow, God I admit I love it. Needed a two-by-four plank upside the head in the form of an electoral disaster to get the message through to him.
     
  9. Hope Blair (wrong country, same Govt) follows suit.
     
  10. If (and I so hope they do) the Dems do win the Senate they should be calling for the impeachment of Bush. They tried to impeach Clinton for having consensual sex with an intern for goodness sake, and yet they're not impeaching Bush for raping a country?
     
  11. I stayed up late, pulled out a small-batch bourbon to sip on and watched the Dems sweep up seats time zone by time zone. Enjoyed watching FoxNews most of all, they looked like they were presiding over a funeral. I swear to God some of them looked like they were ready to cry.
     
  12. blue-sophist

    blue-sophist LE Good Egg (charities)

    Ok, looking ahead ....

    Condie v, Hillary next time round, then?
     
  13. This totally unconfirmed but latest word (delivered in a breathless phonecall) from my "sources" is Rummy did not jump. He was pushed by those close to Dubya. Apparently the Whitehouse chief of staff Joshua Bolten, and some others gave the president an ultimatum: Rummy goes or we do.

    Again totally unconfirmed but if true there is possibly signicant other changes on the way. Cheney might very well have one foot out the door.
     
  14. About time.
