Cheney has Iran in the Crosshairs

Whenever the Bush Administration was losing an argument, they sent out the Hammer. Vice President Dick Cheney would got to some conservative area and deliver “the speech.” Well, I’m guessing that the Bush Administration didn’t think that the American people were buying into the Iran is the ultimate evil. So, here’s the hammer, right on schedule.

Just remember this – “Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us. And there is no doubt that his aggressive regional ambitions will lead him into future confrontations with his neighbors — confrontations that will involve both the weapons he has today, and the ones he will continue to develop with his oil wealth.” Vice President Dick Cheney at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, August 26, 2002.

  1. If Bush and Cheney keep bringing it up and shoving it in everyones face, then doesn’t that make the republican candidates agree to attack Iran? I don’t listen to the debates but if they are siding with Bush about Iran then they are pretty much declaring war. Are they not? Especially when he brings up the fact that he will keep WWIII from happening by keeping Iran under his thumb. This is the longest 15 months. It keeps looking like hBush is going to strike Iran especially since the nuclear negotiator for Iran has resigned. Russia is on Iran’s side and Bush could care less. Bush is stressing he isn’t a lame duck president and is still the decider so he will be more of an idiot and prove he is still in charge by pushing our soldiers past the limit and smile the whole time.

  2. Margaret –

    Most of the Republican candidates believe that the way to the White House is to our Bush, Bush. Scary.

    Thanks for your comment.
