Rumsfeld Replaced

In what you might consider the first actual victory against the Bush-Cheney cabal, it is now being reported that head hawk Donald Rumsfeld is being replaced.

US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is standing down, President George W Bush has announced after bruising losses for Republicans in mid-term elections. Mr Bush said that both he and Mr Rumsfeld had agreed the time was right for new leadership at the Pentagon.

Former CIA Director Robert Gates has been nominated to replace Mr Rumsfeld.

The Democrats won control of the House of Representatives in the polls, and the Senate balance of power hangs on a tight race in just one state, Virginia.

BBC News, "Rumsfeld replaced after poll loss"
Sure, as some might say, this may amount to little more than the Bush administration sacrificing a pawn in an effort to appear as if they are taking some sort of responsibility, but at least the opposition has had enough power to force their hand.

Excellent. With Rumsfeld gone and the Democrats controlling both House and Senate... that means the war is over! Cancer will be cured. World peace will spontaneously break out. Hmm did I miss anything? *grins*

I just can't wait to see all the positive changes now that the Republicans have been rejected by the populace, mainly due to voters rejecting the war in Iraq.
