At least this one's retiring...

Franks said he agreed with the president's controversial message last week for Iraqi militants attacking U.S. troops.

"Absolutely," said Franks, adding: "Bring 'em on."

Franks said several hundred U.S. and other foreign forces had lost their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq over the past 22 months and this toll should be looked at in the light of about 3,000 Americans who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

"The fact is, wherever we find criminals, death squads and so forth who are anxious to do damage to this country and to peace-loving countries around the world, I absolutely agree with the president of the United States: 'bring 'em on."

Right now I'm pretty much speechless. Best thing I can say about Franks is he's at least the genuine cowboyesque soldier that the Connecticut born, Andover, Yale, and Harvard bred Bush wants you to think he is.

I do wonder what they're on. This, maybe?
