Chicken Hawk Dick Cheney Has Turned Into Chicken Little
President George W. Bush consulted the Bible and neo-cons in formulating his foreign policy, and both the divine and the profane sources told him to bomb the hell out of Iraq as the first step in spreading democracy in the Middle East.
The king of the neocons, Dick Cheney, refuses to admit that his brilliant strategy succeeding only in emboldening Iran, strengthening al Qaeda, and turning the world against us.
Cheney is infuriated that Obama has promised to close Guantanamo within a year, and he is hopping mad that our combat troops will soon be leaving Iraq.
Cheney is no longer the power behind the throne, all he can do now is warn that the sky is falling. Cheney is punishing America for electing Obama to the White House by warning that we are in imminent danger of a horrifying terrorist attack.
"Dick Cheney isn`t finished scaring the bejesus out of America.
"The former vice president warned Wednesday that there`s a `high probability` the U.S. will get nuked by terrorists during President Obama`s watch.
`The ultimate threat to the country [is] a 9/11-type event where the terrorists are armed with something much more dangerous than an airline ticket and a box cutter - a nuclear weapon or a biological agent of some kind,` Cheney told Politico.com from his latest undisclosed location - his new Virginia office.
Cheney said that `perhaps hundreds of thousands of people` would perish in such a strike, and that `there`s a high probability of such an attempt.`"
It is irresponsible for Cheney to make such a warning without offering any proof. If there is a high probability of such an attack it didn`t materialize suddenly once Obama became president. Why didn`t Bush/Cheney deal with the imminent terrorist threat before leaving office?
If Americans don`t take Cheney seriously (and we shouldn`t), he will resort to issuing warnings about the Super Volcano under Yellowstone or an invasion of little green men from Mars.
I wish Cheney would stay in his undisclosed location, and stay way from civilized society.
