I'm glad he got grilled. The soldiers have a legitimate beef, i think Rumsfeld gave respectable answers. I think it was a good thing because Rumsfeld doesn't want to get grilled again so he will probably be on top of the people in charge of production of the armor, and things will get sped up a notch. I don't think the military expected this kind of insurgency by foriegn soldiers, old Saddam loyalists, Zarkowi, and even Saddr for awhile. The forces of non democratic countries don't want a democratic Iraq for Iranians, Saudis', and Syrians to dream about. They want the whole area as repressed as them so people think that's the way it has to be. That's why this betrayal by the French, Germans, and Russians is worse than first thought, this whole thing could've had a more international feel to it, but they let money get in the way of doing what is right. They stand to benefit more by a democratic Middle East. If we don't stop the brainwashing of kids by Middle Eastern schools and gov't, muslims are going to take over Europe. Their dog is in this fight, but instead they pretend they are being a counterbalance. A counterbalance to what? Common sense?
