Kind of off topic, but has anyone else noticed the World War 3 is quickly evolving and we're being bullshitted into thinking that it's not?
And here's what John Aravosis said later:
Rummy is setting the stage for us to attack Iran

I still say, fine, let him. With what Army? All the soldiers we have in Iraq on the 2nd and 3rd tour? That should be interesting. What Bush is doing is setting the stage for a surgical strike against Iran's nuclear plants - hoping that Iran won't retaliate by invading Iraq. But then what do they think Iran will do? They'll have to do something to respond. Blow up a few embassies in Europe? Some suicide bombers in the US?
And here's an excerpt from the article John links to above:
Rumsfeld said that the world needed to prepare itself for a long fight against Islamic terrorists who he said wanted to set up a global Islamic empire.
"They have designed and distributed a map where national borders are erased and replaced by a global extremist Islamic empire," he said. "As during the Cold War, the struggle ahead promises to be a long war."
Washington and its allies were doing everything possible to ensure that terrorists did not get hold of weapons of mass destruction, which he described as a nightmare scenario.
"The world would change overnight if a handful of terrorists managed to obtain and launch a chemical, biological, or radiological weapon," he said.
That's right, Rumsfeld. Do everything you can to terrify the American people so we'll let you take away our freedoms and thank you for it. And who's to say that the Bush administration won't launch such a weapon itself and blame it on "the terrorists"? Bush and Co. have already demonstrated that they have no morals. It will give them exacly what they want: an excuse to declare martial law. Look, I hope I'm wrong. I really, really so hope I'm wrong. But just don't be surprised when it happens.
