Dick Cheney: More Good News From Iraq - The British Are Leaving

Dick Cheney's distortions of the truth are legendary but today was special. He looked at the British plan to leave southern Iraq and pronounced it good news. Even by his loathsome standards this was quite an accomplishment. I'm sure his true sheep followers will swallow it, but ask yourself the giant question that the reporter on the plane talking with Cheney didn't ask: "Sir, if the Coalition of the Willing is fighting this war together and one part of Iraq is secure, why don't the British just move to another part till the war is done?"

It would be like John Wayne saying, "I've just knocked out my guy in this barroom brawl so I'll just mosey out the door while my buddies go on fighting." No, John Wayne would drop his guy and move on to the next. Cheney must have seen these movies. He sure looks like he's been around a lot of popcorn.

Wake up, Bush supporters. If you've deluded yourself thus far into thinking the VP is an honorable man, here was your chance. You got to see your beloved tough guy lying right to your face. This wasn't some tricky argument about Mobile Labs, or Metal Tubes. This was something even Bush supporters should be able to grasp.

Cheney looked at Great Britain setting up a timetable to withdraw - the exact same thing Cheney has campaigned against - and pronounced it good news. But wait, it's because the job is done in Basra, which, by the way, I doubt. If the job is done why not leave tomorrow? And either way, the war isn't over so why not come to Baghdad?

It's not that Baghdad is too crowded with our forces, is it? Maybe if the British joined us there, they'd bump into our guys. That's just how big the force is. Okay, that's ridiculous, but let's just pretend it was true. Then how about going to Fallujah or some of the other hotspots where security has not been established? Simple: The British want out of Iraq. They are done.

We've all had dozens of chances to see Dick Cheney spin the truth into a lie. It's what he does. I guess it's a little ridiculous of me to expect Bush supporters to snap out of their trance now, and see through this, but I'm going to keep trying. We've got to unite as a People and remove these leaders from office. I'm not calling for prison time. No. Let Bush and Cheney serve their sentences at Walter Reed's mice-infested Building 18. They deserve that.

Oh, why bother - it's hopeless. These right wingers are either so dumb or in the tank that they'll never get this. They'll never grasp the truth. Ahh, shoot. One more time. Let's see....How about if we make this a multiple choice question, so everyone has a fair chance? Okay, here goes:

You're in a war and your staunchest ally announces they are pulling out before the war is won. Is this A.) Good News, B.) Okay News, or C.) Bad News? If you chose "A", it's official. Dick Cheney owns your soul, and you need to watch a John Wayne movie really soon.

Yeah, I don't think that spin by Cheeney worked so well. It sort of just toppled over.

Iraq is going to continue to get worse, and more American kids are going to be killed. What a stupid thing Bush has done.

Dick Cheney's Contempt for America

Cheney today said that Speaker Pelosi's Iraq plan would 'validate Al Qaeda'.

See, Bill, Cheney's spawn butch brings only contempt for you. You are neat. But

butch is BUTCHery -- US soldier under court-martial at a Kentucky military base broke down in tears on Wednesday as he described how he and others planned the rape of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl "...knew it would be an easy target," Cortez said.

Once at the house, Green took the girl's mother, father and little sister into a bedroom, Cortez said, while he and Barker took the teenager, Abeer Qassim al-Janabi, to the living room.

"She kept squirming and trying to keep her legs closed and saying stuff in Arabic," Cortez said.

"During the time me and Barker were raping Abeer, I heard five or six gunshots that came from the bedroom.

After Barker was done, Green came out of the bedroom and said that he had killed them all, that all of them were dead," Cortez said.

"Green then placed himself between Abeer's legs to rape her," Cortez said, sniffing audibly.

When Green was finished, he "stood up and shot Abeer in the head two or three times".


The entire crime took about five minutes to carry out, he added.
