"I am absolutely convinced that we will succeed in the war on terror, and I'm also convinced that it will happen on your watch," he said.

Convinced != convincing

Cheney noted that the cadets entered the academy during the Iraq war and that it continues as they graduate.

"I am absolutely convinced that we will succeed in the war on terror, and I'm also convinced that it will happen on your watch," he said.


How long is a normal enlistment? Would that last till, say 2013?

"The only way to lose this fight is to quit. That would be irresponsible," Cheney said. "More than that, quitting would be an act of betrayal and dishonor."

F*ck you, you fat f*ck. You cannot speak of betrayal and dishonor, because you and your war profiteering ilk are beneath contempt and represent the lowest form of life imaginable.

As long as there are cars and bombs and injustice, there will be terrorism. We need to get rid of the cars, obviously, and Dick Cheney has been hard at work on that the past 8 years.

Old 5 Deferrals Cheney sure does know something about betrayal and dishonor. But I like how the goofy hat is a lame attempt to make this bag of sociopathic evil appear somewhat human.

We will also win the War On Drugs, War On Obesity, and start the War On Grumpiness which will be the war to end all wars.

So say we all.

"I am absolutely convinced that we will succeed in the war on terror, and I'm also convinced that it will happen on your watch," he said.

Cheney was also convinced that Saddam had WMDs.

Cheney was also convinced that the invasion wouldn't last more than six months.

Cheney was convinced that Mohammed Atta met with Saddam's agent in Prague long after everyone else knew that this was a fable.

Three or four years ago Cheney was also convinced that the insurgency was a bunch of dead enders in their last throes.

Cheney has yet to be right about pretty much ANYTHING Iraq-related. I think he's very very easily convinced or perhaps that (maybe?) he has an agenda which skews his opinions towards the completely unrealistic pablum that he spews so frequently.

Pretty much what I came to say with the exception of the fat thing.

Of course the WoT won't last forever, it was simply a means by which the US treasury could be looted while simultaneously distracting the US populace from that fact. It will last until there isn't any more money in it for Cheney's business contacts then it will quietly go on the shelf next to the War on Drugs.

I love real hats, I actually wear a fedora all winter long. I have never learned the difference between cowboy style hats. A little help here, what makes a 10gal hat a 10gal hat, if it is a true designation.

10 gals one hat....

A cowboy hat? On the coast of Connecticut? At a service academy graduation? Really?

That was the most ridiculous choice of headwear since Jack Abramoff decided to start sporting a fedora for his trial.

Oh yeah, also Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, and the rest of those treasonous bastards that spent the last two terms raping the Constitution they swore to uphold. Their incompetence and deception are unforgivable, and locking their treasonous arses up is going to be the best foreign policy move the next President and Congress could possibly make.

"The war on terror is a lengthy enterprise, but it does not have to go on forever...
"The only way to lose this fight is to quit."


Well, if you can't quit and you can't win, I guess it does have to go on forever.
 
2008-05-22 12:11:36 PM
I wonder if this is the same speech terror cells give their members. Rouse up their angst and tell them that after all these years, their sacrifice will be the one that tips the scale.

Kinda like how Marge "convinced" Homer that hitting Dredrick Tatum would tip the fight back in his favor.

It's an utter shame this fascist douchebag neocon and his cronies where able to infiltrate our goverment. By definition he is a terrorist. I would love to see him found guilty by the courts for crimes against humanity, the environment and war crimes then have him hung in public like Sadam was. Then we can post a banner declairing mission accomplished.

Declaring war on terror is like declaring war on hiding behind rocks to shoot at people. You cannot defeat a tactic.

THIS. Why is it that we are such cowards that we let an asshole like Cheney scare us? Fark that!

Sure 911 was sad and all, but I thought America was far tougher than to just turn into diaper-wetting pansies from one terrorist attack. Sad thing is, is that the current administration was warned of some possible attack yet did NOTHING TO STOP IT.

This is truly the darkest time in American history, from such a complete lack of leadership.

Ok, enough ranting, im sure some closet Freeeper is crapping his pants at what I am typing. Crap yourself, little freeper. Crap a nice one.

PsyLord: How do you get rid of terror? Is he going to lobotomize every American so we cannot feel fear? Seriously, does anyone even believe any of this crap anymore?

That's a really big question that no one has bothered to answer. What, exactly, is "terror?" Did we declare war on all terrorists? If we did, then that's a war we can't win the way we've been doing it, because invading countries, torturing people and blowing people up just creates more angry, desperate people who feel like they have no choice but to strike back at the people who invaded their country, and the cheapest way to strike back at them is by terrorist strikes. You want to get rid of terrorists? Give them less reasons to hate us.

See, it's this kind of thinking Cheney is fighting against. All you have are questions and complaints. He has answers. If only you'd trust a little bit more, wish a little bit harder.

Or, alternately... kill everyone. Mass genocide will eventually rid the world of terrorists.
