Dick Cheney, who I insist on referring to as Dr. Evil, is not content to rest in his retirement. No, he enjoys the spotlight so much that he feels the need to constantly offer his worthless opinion on all manner of subjects.
On September 8, the former Vice President will give what is billed as a “major” speech on the Iran nuclear deal, no doubt calling for another war in the Middle East since the ones he and his puppet George W. Bush started in Afghanistan and Iraq are going so well.
Cheney’s unhinged, madman rant–uh, I mean, speech–will bedelivered at the conservative American Enterprise Institute. In other words, Cheney will be feeding raw meat to a room full of ravenous lions who think his word is second only to God’s.
As recently as July, Cheney declared that the nuclear deal with Iran would make war more likely:
“What Obama has done has, in effect, sanctioned the acquisition by Iran of nuclear capability. And it can be a few years down the road. It doesn’t make any difference. It’s a matter of months until we’re going to see a situation where other people feel they have to defend themselves by acquiring their own capability. And that will, in fact, I think put us closer to use — actual use of nuclear weapons than we’ve been at any time since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.”
And of course we all know how good Cheney is at predicting the outcomes of conflicts with other nations. After all, this is the soothsayer who announced shortly before the last Iraq war began in 2003:
“Now, I think things have gotten so bad inside Iraq, from the standpoint of the Iraqi people, my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.”
Yep, we liberated the Iraqi people to make way for ISIS. Now that’s a hell of an accomplishment! Thanks, Dick!
I have yet to understand why anyone listens to anything Dick Cheney claims as truth. If he told me the sky was blue, I would rush outside to double-check. Is there anyway we can go ahead and turn this cancer over to the World Court for war crimes?
