"How do we win the war on the media?" asks a soldier. "How do we win the propaganda war?"

Rumsfeld: Patriot and statesman with the vision of a Churchill.

Having only the newspapers and cable news the past few days, I must admit I thought Rumfeld was a goner. This morning I was able to catch some of the news and saw a soldier holding a placard that said, 'The US soldiers support Rumsfeld.' Guess that IS the point.

If they can name a carrier after Bush pere' who is still alive I propose naming a carrier after Rummy. As soon as he retires.

I propose Congress lay down the keel asap. and that it be carrier "X" until Rummy retires.

I know the press will put a neg spin on this, I just can't imagine what it will be.

Just a note, I had a chance to watch that Q&A last night, I'm almost positive you misquoted him.. I believe he said

That "DOESNT" sounds like a question that was planted by the press.

God Bless Rummy

Oh, that's simple. The spin will be "Despite the ever-increasing chaos and violence in Iraq..." These people have no vision and no concern beyond the next news cycle and the next arbitrons/nielsens.

"I know the press will put a neg spin on this, I just can't imagine what it will be."

The headline was: "Rumsfeld gets friendly questions in Iraq" and the story begins"

"The questions from the troops for Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld were considerably more friendly..."

As if they were hostile in the past....

"I propose Congress lay down the keel asap. and that it be carrier "X" until Rummy retires."

Yes: The Rumsfeld Class carrier; smaller, faster, mission felixible and most deadly.

Dunno about a Carrier- IMO, one named after W should come first.

But a tank named after Rumsfeld- now, *that* seems appropriate.

As a former Naval Aviator, "Rummy" would probably appreciate the carrier more. After all, the "Forrestal" set the precedent. But I agree with Rosignol, "W" would be more appropriate, first. It is his policies that Rumsfeld is carrying out. However, the traditionalist and nostalgic part of me liked it better, when they named carriers after famous battles.
