Without a straight face?

If Cheney was right about Iraq we would have found the WMDs, there'd be no violence there, democracy would reign supreme and be serving as a model to the rest of the Gulf states, Americans would be universally loved, and we'd be filthy with oil money.


Instead we created a petri dish for strife and terrorism.

Yeah, but what have the Romans ever done for us?

So ISIS is just acknowledging us as liberators now that their last throes are over and we've turned the corner?

 I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the Obama administration.

Don't even bother reading the comments.

Cheney has never been right about anything.

Unless he made a bet with someone that he could shoot a friend in the face and the friend would apologize.

And this would have happened in four weeks.

Right when?

Right under the Bush I administration when he said toppling Sadam would be worse in the long run? Or Cheney at literally every moment in time since then?
 
2014-08-25 09:34:33 AM  
The only thing Cheney is correct in is consuming the hearts of children grants immortality.

At least this is the only plausible answer I can think of to explain his still being alive.

cameroncrazy1984: Cheney has never been right about anything.


Yes he has, as far as his own interests are concerned.  Not morally right, mind you, but right in his own mind.
 
2014-08-25 09:45:04 AM  
How do you tell Cheney we should've stayed the f*#% out to begin with?
 
2014-08-25 09:57:46 AM  
Duct tape that shiatbag, beat him a little, then drop him off on the front steps to The Hague. That's the only interaction with the world he deserves. The only microphone he should have is the one on the end of cable his tormentor is using to beat him with. That said, he was entirely wrong. It has probably always been so, but this century's little escapade there slaughtered so many in a direct fashion and many tens of thousands more due to sheer incompetence on the part of the Bush administration was far, far worse.

I don't know what the painfully stupid author in tfa is suffering from, but reading his little childish "article" on that stupid webshiate shows it is likely a developmental disability. It is nice to see that he can operate a computer, though.

I laughed so hard.

I_Am_Weasel: Right about what of Iraq?


That's what I was wondering.  What has Cheney said that he was actually correct about?  The article never says.

This is all you need to do.

The only time Cheney was ever right about Iraq was possible when asked to identify it on a map.

I think the author is referring to this

It's as cogent as any other "argument" you'll ever read from AT.

are... there people who actually believe cheney was right about iraq?

I would like McCain to explain the picture of him smiling with the leader of the ISIS caliphate, back when the guy was part of the "Free Syrian Army."

They work off a narrative. If you missed the first couple of episodes of the great GW Bush and Cheney retcon, you missed that they were right to invade Iraq because ISIS(L) and terrorists. See? All those terrorsists. Good thing we went to Iraq, you know. Now that this is part of "known knowns" they don't need to keep repeating it.

Who needs oil drills when we've replanted the goalposts all over that country like 1000 times already.

They greeted us as liberators with marching Talibands!

I'll one up that and say "don't even bother clicking the link"

You mean if you tear apart a country without providing adequate security or insuring a proper transfer of power, that things can get borked pretty damn well?

I don't recall him ever saying that.

Rumsfeld?
 
2014-08-25 11:54:21 AM  
You mean the people who thought this whole idea was ill-conceived and would result in more instability in the region (who were called traitors and worse by Cheney and his ilk) were right all along? How about that.
 
2014-08-25 11:55:50 AM  
Obama was telling everybody that Iraq had WMD's and the war would only last six months and we'd be greeted as liberators and the money from the Iraqi oil fields would pay for the war and Cheney was all, "No, you idiots! Saddam doesn't have WMD's! The oil fields are going to be taken over by oil companies and we'll never see any of that money! Toppling Saddam is just going to splinter the region into the Sunnis, Shia and Kurds and there's just going to be an endless battle between the three for control of land and resources! EVERYTHING OBAMA SAID IS WRONG WRONG WRONG! DON'T DO THIS!"

But did Obama listen to Cheney? No.

Thanks, Obama.

Yeah I have no idea how "right about Iraq" can be truthful in any way where Cheney is concerned.

Well, presumably he thought it would be a huge financial boon to the military-industrial complex in general and Halliburton in particular, and would provide a handy political issue to attack the Democrats with. He was certainly right about those.

Remember truth is subjective. My ex-wife and Cheney both believe this.

"The left is down to Bush-bashing, a clear sign that there are desperate about their current situation."

They just now noticed?

Obama should never have let Bush withdraw from Iraq. We need to provide security for a bunch of losers intent on killing each other for the rest of our days because we can't afford to spend that kind of money on healthcare.

They have standards? At least the Daily Mail is entertaining.
 
2014-08-25 12:01:26 PM  
Well, that was exactly as incisive and objective as I've come to expect from American Thinker.
 
2014-08-25 12:01:35 PM  
What, Obama wants to tell us it was a cake walk, and revel all the flowers that were tossed at us in welcome?
 
2014-08-25 12:02:51 PM  
The only right with Cheney is that he is Right-wing.
