Dick Gets A Hard-On For Iran (Again)


Iran has agreed to open it's heavy water reactor to UN inspections as part of it's obligations as a co-signee to the Non-Proliferation Treaty. say what you will about Ahmadinejad being a madman, at least he alows more transparency than the crazies in the "I don't recall/executive privilege" Bush regime. So while Al Qaeda thrives in Pakistan, Dick Cheney has been pushing for war with Iran. This won't stop terrorism, of course, but it will mean billions of dollars worth of no0-bid contracts and overcharges for Halliburton, and that's good for Dick Cheney.
But it's not good for the people of Iran, many of whom want democracy, not nuclear fallout. It would not end terrorsim, only increase it as much as the war in Iraq has drawn more people to oppose the US occupation. Increased risks of attacks in a more volatile region wouldn't be good for US troops stationed over there.
According to a Washington source, Bush and Cheney do not trust the next administration to deal with Iran decisively. Of course, people who lack trust are often not trustworthy themselves, as evidenced by a). the repeated lies spewn forth from the mouths of Bush and Cheney, and b). the veil of secrecy they cloak themselves in.

I'm not convinced that the US will be kicking off another war. That being said, Israel is way too close, and your guys are sitting right between. Couple that with a "catalytic" event that enables Cheney to grab emergency powers... And you've got a happy 2007/2008. Maybe.

Joe Lieberman is saying this silly shit too.

Good line about 'trust'. Ol' Dick & George know how well they lie themselves (and how well that works!), so they naturally assume everyone else in lying too. Beyond Machiavelli.

I love the pic. With nothing but shit flying around the White House my very tight tin foil hat is making me think that a HUGE distraction is coming soon.

Someone needs to pry that viagra away from Dick then...

With their credibility down to virtually zero, I doubt that Cheney/Bush will be able to invade another country. Oops, wait a second, these assbags do whatever they want.

I'll bet neither one (Bush or Cheney) can hit the urinal, either. They just don't aim. Great pic and it sure tells the real story behind this administration.

The picture brings up the old movie we saw four plus years ago. The one where bush hurried the troops into Iraq so the American people wouldn't have time to digest what the weapons inspectors were not finding in Iraq.

Again? Oii, my tinfoil hat is giving me ring around the head. Did you really mean "Dick gets a heart-On?"
