Everyone can relax, Rummy's got the plan. With American troops stretched beyond breaking while serving in Iraq, Rummy knows that an influx of troops from a foreign country to supplement the old Coalition of the Willing could be just the ticket for solving that tricky Iraq insurgency/terrorism problem. So, when Rummy needs that injection of troops he know that he can turn to our longtime allies in ... Montenegro? Yes, that's right! A country that was formerly a part of the various incarnations of Yugoslavia and only recently achieved independene in June of this year is currently being courted by Rummy to join in the fight against terror.
So, let me see if I understand this - Rumsfeld is meeting with the leaders of a country the size of Connecticut in an effort to bolster troop numbers in Iraq and Afghanistan in the hopes that it will alleviate some of the strains on the U.S. military. Has the situation really grown so desperate that we're hoping that Montenegro will bail us out of our troubles? What next - perhaps Rummy could hit up a local boy scout troop in the northern Virginia area? Maybe a high school Key Club? If Rummy thinks that Montenegro can actually contribute to our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, then things are either going swimmingly over there, or he's even worse at this job than we all thought, and that's saying something.
