Shows where you're coming from. From the Farmer:

DONALD RUMSFELD: Well, I think when you say "that different," it's important to understand that you can - when the Germans transformed their armed forces into the Blitzkrieg, they transformed only about 5 or 10 percent of their force. Everything else was the same, but they transformed the way they used it, the connectivity between aircraft and forces on the ground, the concentration of it in a specific portion of the line, and it - one would not want to transform 100 percent of your forces. You only need to transform a portion. [my emphasis]

What have I been saying for the last year? Rummy wants to be the next Hermann Goering. The American Blitzkrieg in Iraq. Oy! Shows you how much history they understand. Hitler had the same problem, manpower. Why is it that when despots have a well equipped air force,they think they don't need ground troops? Hitler made that mistake [little Germany trying to occupy Europe, Africa, and Russia, a joke], and we're making it in the Mid East. Bush's folly will end like Hitler's, in defeat.
