Cheney is a thieving, murderous, sadistic, lying, chicken-hearted piece of camel dung. He puppeteered Bush into an illegal occupation of Iraq to enrich himself and his cronies. Where's Osama?

Vice President Dick Cheney used every trick he could to evade the draft and military service altogether during the Vietnam War. His evasion of service has significant ramifications in his execution of the Iraq War. Americans should demand more in their vice president.

OpEdNews » Cheney the Chickenhawk

Iraq has replaced Afghanistan as the training ground for the next generation of "professionalized" terrorists, according to a report released yesterday by the National Intelligence Council, the CIA director's think tank.

Iraq New Terror Breeding Ground (washingtonpost.com)

Cheney has pursued a political and corporate career to make himself very rich and powerful. He is the personification of a war profiteer who slid through the revolving door connecting the public and private sectors of the defense establishment on two occasions in a career that has served his relentless quest for power and profits.

Understand about saving your own butt. I left my parents home with nothing, no credentials, no old school ties, took every crummy job that came along to get promoted, saved and invested. Retired now, sitting pretty, no one's fool.
THAT'S the American reality if you want to get by in this life.

Here is what America stands for since the Bush/Cheney crime and torture spree...
Is it any wonder that an Iraqi throws a shoe at Bush? I'd like to throw up on him.

I'd be curious as to HOW EXACTLY do the dems think we should get information from guys like khalid sheik mohammed, that just won't talk any other way.

Maybe you should get the answer from an expert...

An Air Force counterintelligence agent, that volunteered to go to Iraq to work as a senior interrogator says....

I refused to participate in such practices, and a month later, I extended that prohibition to the team of interrogators I was assigned to lead. I taught the members of my unit a new methodology -- one based on building rapport with suspects, showing cultural understanding and using good old-fashioned brainpower to tease out information. I personally conducted more than 300 interrogations, and I supervised more than 1,000. The methods my team used are not classified (they're listed in the unclassified Field Manual), but the way we used them was, I like to think, unique. We got to know our enemies, we learned to negotiate with them, and we adapted criminal investigative techniques to our work (something that the Field Manual permits, under the concept of "ruses and trickery"). It worked. Our efforts started a chain of successes that ultimately led to Zarqawi.

Oh, and BTW...being against torture is the American way and not a Democratic or Republican stance...it is a matter of humanity.
