Why aren't these ungrateful bastards
giving us flowers and waving A'merkin flags?

Rumsfeld predicts violent summer for US troops

US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld predicts that US forces in Iraq face a violent summer and more deaths in attacks by militants loyal to ousted leader Saddam Hussein.

"I'm afraid we are going to have to expect this go on, and there is even speculation that during the month of July, which is an anniversary for a lot of Baathist events, we could see an increase in the number of attacks," Mr Rumsfeld told NBC television's Meet the Press program.

"We are making progress, and the more progress we make, I'm afraid, the more vicious these attacks will become until the remnants of that regime have been stamped out," he said.

Afraid?! Rumpy-Pumpy you are a pathetic wimp! Your Commander in Chief isn't afraid. "Bring them on!"
