FACT: Dick Cheney enjoys a smoothie each morning made from peaches, strawberries, blueberries, a banana, greek yogurt, orphan tears, and a live puppy.

Cock Cheney & his buddies made huge financial profits from the Iraq war, so as far as he's concerned it was totally worth all the blood spilled and lives ruined.

sounds good
perhaps invade them twice just to make sure

We have to go after the real threats to our interests, like Snowden, before we worry about small fish like Cheney.

Karac: fusillade762: cchris_39: The reading comprehension around here is somewhere between Creationist Peter and Feral Peter.

Please enlighten us, o wise one: which part of this quote are we misinterpreting?

"What we gain and my concern was then and it remains today is that the biggest threat we face is the possibility of terrorist groups like al Qaeda equipped with weapons of mass destruction, with nukes, bugs or gas. That was the threat after 9/11 and when we took down Saddam Hussein we eliminated Iraq as a potential source of that."

Even if you take Cheney's statement is the most positive light possible - that Saddam could have created a bomb, and he could have become friendly with al Qaeda, and he could have decided to part with the WMD's he had spent decades building by giving them to someone over whom he had no control, and who could have very well used them against Saddam himself - even if you assume that all of that is true, you still have to recognize one simple, incontrovertible fact:

We create thousands upon thousands of more terrorists and extremists by invading Iraq than we ever killed there.  The US invading Iraq was the greatest recruiting commercial for terrorists in the world since the Russians invaded Afghanistan.


This & I hope we learned from it- though I doubt it

b2theory: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: There haven't been five people who have done more damage to their own country than this guy, discounting Confederate traitors.

That's like saying Germany has had some poor leaders, discounting the ones who murdered an entire race.

The enslavers/constitution shredders are still at the top of the list of American villains. They died without honour.


I can think of one man who would be very glad indeed to know that Cheney existed, namely, Benedict Arnold. "Now someone else's name can become synonymous with treason. Some has finally surpassed me."

I read it more as Michael Corleone saying he has eliminated you as a threat. Just seems to be a better contextual fit.


Wut? We lost thousands of our citizens, we killed hundreds of thousands of humans, we created thousands of radicals who now have reason to harm us, we spent trillions, we blew our first shot and trimming our deficit since WW2-

All that and you think of gangster movies? I am speechless

Flappyhead: And this guy hasn't been black bagged, thrown into a van, driven to an airport and flown to the Hague because?


Because neither Iraq nor the USA is a state party to the ICC. AFAIK either the alleged offender must be a citizen of a ratified state party, or the crime must have taken place in a ratified state party.

Anyway, he should be rolled up into a carpet and dumped into the East River.

This is a guinea worm (Dracunculus medinensis):

www.malevolentdesign.org

D. medinensis is a parasite which has been reported in humans, dogs, cats, horses, cattle, and other animals in Africa and Asia. It enters a host by way of host ingestion of stagnant water contaminated with copepods (water fleas) infested with guinea worm larvae. The adult worm grows within the host and eventually moves downwards, usually to the lower leg, through the subcutaneous tissues it leads to intense pain localized to its path of travel. The painful, burning sensation experienced by infected people has led to the disease being called "the fiery serpent". Other symptoms include fever, nausea, and vomiting. Once a Guinea worm begins emerging, the first step is to do a controlled submersion of the affected area in a bucket of water. This causes the worm to discharge many of its larva, making it less infectious. The water is then discarded on the ground far away from any water source. Submersion results in subjective relief of the burning sensation and makes subsequent extraction of the worm easier. To extract the worm, a person must wrap the live worm around a piece of gauze or a stick. The process can be long, taking anywhere from hours to months. It is of great importance not to break the worm when pulling it out. Broken worms have a tendency to putrefy or petrify. Putrefaction leads to the skin sloughing off around the worm. Petrification is a problem if the worm is in a joint or wrapped around a vein or other important area.

Dick Cheney is the only person who ever lived who actually deserves guinea worms. Sadly, they are repulsed by him and will have nothing to do with him.

Best Korea has chemical AND nuclear weapons. Definite possession of WMDs. We KNOW they've got them. Hell, they even brag that they've got them. No U.N. inspectors necessary. Why don't we invade NK and get rid of those WMDs?

And each and every Tea Party supporter will claim to have been one of the "Good Germans" when their smoke clears to reveal the burned out wreckage of this once-proud, former world power.

Same reason we know that Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, et al knew for a fact prior to the invasion that Iraq did not have WMDs: invading a nation that really does have WMDs would be insane.


BMulligan: Dick Cheney is the only person who ever lived who actually deserves guinea worms. Sadly, they are repulsed by him and will have nothing to do with him.


Guinea worms would be way too soft of a punishment for him. That other parasite that enters through the urethra I honestly can't imagine a sufficient punishment. The worst imagined versions of the Christian Hell and Lake of Fire, or any other religion's worst afterlife punishment, don't even come remotely close to sufficing.

Over a million horribly dead (and millions more likely to die) in a vain attempt to satisfy his greed. The greatest nation in history looted and gutted in a vain attempt to satisfy his greed.

SHUT UP COCK CHENEY, YOU DICK!!

What, are you crazy? They have WMDs! It would be nuts to attack them. I can't imagine why other countries would try to make WMDs of their own, after what happened to Iraq and what didn't happen to North Korea. Wait a second...

The true irony of your statement?

The Carter Foundation, created by that best-of-all-ex-Presidents, one James Earl Carter, has virtually eliminated the Guinea worm in Africa, with an annual infection rate of under 500 last year down from over 2 million when they began 20 years ago. The antithesis of Cheney has nearly eliminated the one thing Cheney deserves more than anything else...

We don't know for sure. Let's have congress send Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney to the Hague and have an international court determine whether they are war criminals or not. If they are not guilty everyone agrees to stop ragging on them, seriously all stop, on the other hand if found guilty they will be hanged until death. Sounds fair?

Except he wasn't going in for ideological, spreading-democracy reasons--he and Bush were going in to prevent a 'smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud'.

His old heart was never destroyed. Don't you see? He replaced it because he knows that if we kill his old heart we kill him.
