Pot Calling The Kettle Black

Clark Criticizes Planned Base Closings - Yahoo! News

So, Wesley Clark thinks the BRAC plan is a bad idea. He doesn't think it's a good idea to remove troops from Europe. Gee, I wonder if Germany contributed to Weesley Clarks campaign?

"We're losing influence abroad when we bring those troops home, and we lose the interaction with America when we create these super bases," Clark said in a speech to the Arkansas Associated Press Managing Editors Association.

Of course, then you've got Clark calling Bolton a "Bully". Ohhhhh. That's tough talk from Weesley Clark who almost started another war with Russia back in the 90's.

Clark also voiced his concerns about Bush's nomination of John Bolton to United Nations ambassador, calling Bolton "somewhat of a bully."

"He's going to have a very tough time in the United Nations," Clark said. "When you come in with that much overhang, with all this reputation against you, it's that much more difficult. And all that's known in the United Nations.

"Personally, I don't like bullies," he added. "Just because you outrank somebody doesn't mean you don't respect them and their judgment."

I'm sure General Clark NEVER pulled rank on anyone, right?
