Dick Cheney Wanted War With Russia
During the 2008 conflict between Russia and Georgia, Dick Cheney was secretly pushing for a military conflict between the United States and Russia.
This information comes from a book by Ronald Asmus: A Little War That Shook The World: Georgia, Russia and the Future of the West.
In August of 2008, Georgia invaded Abkhazia and South Ossetia. They’re both former provinces of Georgia; most of the inhabitants of these former provinces are ethnically Russian. Russia sent in troops to drive out the Georgian invaders. There was no “right” or “wrong” involved. That part of the world has ethnic hatreds that go back centuries, and tough-as-nails people who won’t take shit from anybody, and who will avenge any perceived “wrong” no matter how long it takes.
But the American press — including that “liberal media” — saw the whole thing as poor little helpless Georgia being invaded by Big Bad Russia.
According to Asmus’ book:
“The sheer scale of the Russian attack did lead several senior White House staffers to push for at least some consideration of limited military options to stem the Russian advance. The menu of options under discussion foresaw the possibility of bombardment and sealing of the Roki Tunnel as well as other surgical strikes to reduce Russian military pressure on the Georgian government.”
Cheney was the most vocal of the chickenhawks. Fortunately he was overruled by Bush and National Security Advisor Steve Hadley.
Was there ever a bloody brutal war that Dick Cheney DIDN’T long for? This sheltered trustfunded chickenhawk must sit in his secret cubbyhole and masturbate endlessly to images of American soldiers getting butchered, maimed and killed.
There’s only one cure for this pitiful chickenhawk: Make him go through the most brutal military training imaginable. I don’t give a fuck how many heart attacks he’s had or how old he is. Make him run obstacle courses until he collapses, and then make him run and crawl and climb some more. Make him do pushups and pull-ups ‘til his arms fall off. Rinse and repeat.
And just today, Colin Powell told Dick Cheney to shut his maggot-infested face, leave with his tail tucked between his legs, and fuck off and DIE (in so many words).
