I wonder what the Iraqi opinion of him is?
Saddam deposed. Sunni headbangers ousted from power. Democratic government installed. Autonomy for Kurdistan.
Dreadful stuff, I'd say they hate him.

Given what some of them suffered in the first insurgencies after 2003, widespread kidnappings, murders - and then after all that, the rise and fall of ISIS … I’m not really sure what most of them think of him. I’d like to know!

Its a funny thing though isn't it? It never occurs to all the high horse John Pilger lite types that they have no clue how Iraqis feel about that war. Weird, eh? I guess it doesnt matter when it comes to not in my name and all that all craic.

Not a war criminal by his own hand but something worse, someone who deliberately engineered a situation for self-serving reasons that actively facilitated a host of war crimes. Hundreds of thousands of dead, perhaps millions when we examine the knock on effects.

Strange you seem to put the moral culpability on Rumsfeld and not a word re the actual perpetratots.
Its like assigning moral blame for the holocaust to Chamberlain v a lack of foresight or judgment.

What? I’m blaming Rumsfeld for planning a war in which mass war crimes and wholesale destruction were committed. If you want to use your (stupid) WW2 analogy then a better one would be pointing out the fact that Hitler didn’t kill anyone personally but presided over a series events that led to a lot of deaths.

Mr. Rumsfeld was a diligent Defence secretary who when judged in this capacity served the US Military well. I'd find it strange that people so blightedly toss about accusations of being an international criminal under law when, as I can vouch, few people actually attend those classes.

Does anyone else find it ironic that so-called pacifists are toasting the death of someone?
Considering that led to the growth of ISIS and complete ruination of swathes of the country I don’t find that a surprise. Opposing killing hundreds of thousands of people on the basis of a pack of lies about WMDs isn’t some sort of woolly pinko liberalism - it’s basic humanity and common sense.
