Yeah... great icon. I was so mesmerised by it that I almost missed the post.
Seems the karma police have caught up with Mr. Cheney, eh?

It's on!

You know, it would carry a lot more weight for these people if they hadn't all voted for the war in the first place.

Also, I'm not sure where they get off saying that Iran isn't attacking the US--virtually all of the terrorists in Iraq right now are from Syria and Iran.

Dennis K. didn't vote for the war.
And last I checked, Iraq isn't the US. It's a sovereign nation that the US is occupying more or less against it's will.

Actually, things are going incredibly well outside of Baghdad and a couple other huge cities. In most of the places they're much happier according to all that I've read.

But here's the thing that gets me every time:
You can be against the war. You can be for the war. Either way, it it a really, really bad idea to be trying to pull our troops out sooner.

Whether we should have gone or not, it is a proven fact that the places with the higher concentrations of US troops have lower numbers of civilian casualties. The Iraqi military and police forces are untrained and ill-equipped.

It is our mess, and we have a responsibility to clean it up, not just go away and hope that the survivors aren't too bitter.


I think it's funny as well that he's talking about Cheney threatening Iran....the UN has several times, and they threatened Iraq before that. The difference was that the UN is too damn useless to try to follow through on anything.

when did this become about where we are in the war?
The impeachment articles are:
"for violating the constitution and undermining national security by lying to the American people about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and an al-Qaeda connection to justify a war."

I agree with most of what you've said above, and honestly I don't think that a timetable for withdrawal is the best policy at this point, but that's totally outside the scope of the Cheney impeachment.

Well, that was covered with everyone else voting for it.

Everyone thought they had the weapons. Nearly everyone in officewarned Bush about the threat that Iraq was, and how they had an active weapons production plan...but they seem to have done what they could to bury the quotes as it turns out that they are wrong and have a nice big target to point their fingers at.
