We won't have Dick Cheney to kick around much longer!
Dick "Duck Hunter" Cheney opened up his pie-hole yesterday (June 17, 2014) and spouted off about President Obama's mishandling of the recent Sunni insurgents' stunning comeback in Iraq.
This is coming from the guy who is the architect of the Enhanced Interrogation program (water boarding) that yielded absolutely nothing for this country except to place a permanent stain on our reputation as a signatory to the Geneva Convention which outlaws torture such as water boarding.
Or the fact that he made 6 trips to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia and personally browbeat their intelligence team to cook up something to show Saddam Hussein did in fact possess weapons of mass destruction which unfortunately turned out not to be the case.
Or that the U.S. would be greeted as liberators by the Iraqi people as a result of a U.S. invasion of that country which also turned out not to be the case.
The only thing that came of the ill-advised, colossally misguided decision by Cheney and his ilk to invade Iraq was to reignite and reconstitute in whole the centuries schism between the Sunnis and Shi'ites - a schism that went back to 624 A.D. upon the passing of the prophet Mohammed.
Come clean, Dick, it was all about the fucking OIL. After all, you weren't given the CEO title at Halliburton for nothing. With your decades in national politics you were close to all of the levers of power to make things happen for the right people - the energy people. Remember, Dick, you had that secret energy meeting at the White House in 2001 - of which the records still remain sealed.
So, basically, Iraq, being the 4th largest producer of oil in the world, Saddam Hussein was merely a ploy, a backdoor avenue to acquire another huge reservoir of oil.
Yes, Dick, those who live by the oil, die by the oil.
Memo to "Dick" - STFU!
