With further challenges ahead, with efforts to better secure neighborhoods in Baghdad, rather than move to increase enlistment or institute a draft, the troops already stationed will be asked tow ork through lunches, and pick up extra shifts while stationed in Baghdad, “just like we do, when we get extra busy at the Pentagon,” Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfled let slipduring a Pentagon briefing today. 

“Hell, it’s not a cakewalk,” Rumsfeld said.  “A lot of our average Americans back home have to take extra shifts to make ends meet, you know.  I know, when I was their age, I had a paper route, plus I worked in a sub sandwich shop, and they’re young.  It’s not like you have to be immune to hard work when you are in the US military.”

After conferring with advisors, Rumsfeld has decided that the briefing will be carried out by a press spokesperson from this point, to allow Mr. Rumsfeld to spend extra time on other Pentagon matters.
