Dick Cheney Fuck Off And DIE (Part XVIII)

Every time I vow to never do another post about this snarling chickenhawkfuck, its mouth opens and out comes another shitburst, and I end up doing my umpteenth Cheney rant.

As you've probably heard, the Pentagon will be creating a leaner meaner military, shrinking the U.S. Army to its smallest size since before World War II.  This is a good thing, assuming the Pentagon hasn't been infiltrated by a bunch of flag-burning peaceniks.

Needless to say, the Chairborne Division is getting its panties in a wad.  Dick Cheney appeared on Sean Hannity's program last night chickenhawks of a feather flock together and they went into an orgy of hate-spewing and war-mongering.  Dick Cheney said:

“Absolutely dangerous.  I, obviously, have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama but this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military.  They’re basically making the decision, the Obama administration, that they no longer want to be dominant on the seas and the skies and in space.  This notion that we no longer want to have a force that’s capable of any sustained occupation of a foreign territory, that’s a basic fundamental decision that drives — supposedly justifies this. But lots of times, you don’t get to make that choice. Circumstances will make that choice for you. I think the whole thing is not driven by any change in world circumstances, it’s driven by budget considerations.  He would much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would on a strong military or support for our troops.”

During the final debate of the 2012 election, Mitt Romney trotted out that same rightwing talking point that we have fewer weapons and fewer soldiers than we did in the early 1900s, etc.  President Obama got off his classic retort that “We also have fewer horses and bayonets...We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”

Perhaps Dick Cheney was busy twiddling his pacemaker and he missed it.

I think Dick Cheney's been twiddling something a little lower down on his body.

What it really means is that Cheney's old buddies at Kellogg, Brown and Root, and Haliburton will have to find something else to do other then ripping off the Government for overpriced, no-bid contracts.

I'll be celebrating loudly the day he shuffles off this world.

Jerry: Yup, he twiddles that other thing when he's fantasizing about the U.S. penetrating deep deep deep into another country's territory.

Erik: You're exactly right. He won't admit it, so he has to keep stirring up public fears of being invaded, or America not being Number One any more.

Jim: LOL. Me too.

Life: Agreed.
