Like a tardy, glum and grouchy groundhog, Dick Cheney has emerged from his hole in an undisclosed location in order to forecast not six more weeks of winter or an early Spring, but years of imminent terrorist attacks now that he is no longer in charge of the efforts to eliminate democracy in the U.S.A. while claiming to desire to deliver democracy to Iraqis (who never asked for it and appear to desire our departure far more than democracy in order to continue their fractious factional fighting without further interference) as justification for our invasion and occupation, after each previous rationale was proven to be false. (Odd, isn't it, that we invaded the one member of the 'Axis of Evil' with no WMDs.)

The weapons of mass destruction mysteriously disappeared and Saddam, contained by a small contingent of American troops was a minor threat to the stability of the region compared to our overthrow of his regime with no serious
plan to restore and maintain order afterwards.
“Mission accomplished”, declared our puppet president, seated onCheney’s lap Pinocchio style, snickering and smirking, proud to have one-upped his daddy (who was wise enough to leave Saddam in power as a counterweight to Iranian influence
in the region) as chaos reigned in Iraq, and Iran took advantage of the situation, while somewhere near the Afghanistan/Pakistan border, Osama Bin Laden laughed, as our troops were for the most part tied up elsewhere, while he traveled from one Al-Qaeda camp to the next.
An easily recognized man, standing nearly seven feet tall witha turban on his head and dragging around a dialysis machine and probably a generator to power it could not be found, while Saddam was easily found underground! Our priorities under Cheney/Bush seem to have been erroneous as well as negligent.
Now Dick has the nerve to run his mouth about what President Obama is doing wrong while defending “enhanced interrogation techniques” and other criminal actions of his administration.
I have a suggestion. Dick Cheney should volunteer to undergo a bit of waterboarding. Then he can share with us whether he found it to be torturous or perhaps refreshing.
Dick, please climb back under the rock or into the hole where you were hiding. You are now irrelevant. Dick Cheney, won’t you please go home? Or go shoot somebody in the face? Or at least shut up!
