101st Potemkin Battalion reporting for duty, sir!
Another day, another speech before a well-behaved military audience by the Vice Commander-in-Chief:
Vice President Dick Cheney argued forcefully Tuesday against an early withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq, saying that would be “unwise in the extreme” and increase the risk of terrorist attacks in the United States and other nations.
“On this, both Republicans and Democrats should be able to agree: The only way the terrorists could win is if we lose our nerve and abandon our mission,” Cheney said at this military base in northern New York, where the Army’s 10th Mountain Division and the New York Army National Guard’s 42nd Infantry Division gathered for a rally.
Would it be rude to point out that America has other priorities?
And what is this about “our mission” and “we”, Deferment-Boy? Hell, Cheney won’t even go out in public here. It’s like the military bases and Heritage Foundation get-togethers have become his own personal floating Green Zone.
