The American Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, says that IF a civil war were to erupt in Iraq, it would be the responsibility of the Iraqi defense forces to deal with it.

Huh!?!? What the hell kind of attitude is that!?!? I'm sorry, but that kind of thinking is just plain irresponsible.

Look at it this way: If someone takes their dog out for a walk and it drops a fresh, steaming pile of gooey doo-doo all over the sidewalk, isn't it expected that the dog's owner will clean it up before someone steps in it? After all, if the guy hadn't taken the dog for a walk, the doo-doo would never have ended up on the sidewalk in the first place. Am I right or am I right?

So how is the current situation in Iraq any different? After all, if the Americans had never have invaded in the first place, Iraq wouldn't be on the verge of civil war. Again, am I right or am I right?

Rather than skulking away and pretending to know nothing about that fresh pile of doo-doo in the middle east, Rumsfeld needs to own up to the fact that it's his responsibility to clean up the mess.
