Look Spot. See Dick play the fool.

Of course Cheney thinks Blair's slap in the face announcement that Britain will be pulling their troops out of Iraq on an expedited schedule is a good thing. The man has never seen a set-back or disaster in Iraq as anything but a positive sign that the insurgency is in "its last throes." The wholesale bailing of the pathetic remains of the "coalition of the willing" in Cheney's world can only mean that the security situation is improving. And hell, he "knows a guy" who drove all the way to Basra last week and told him it was a lot better than it was a year ago. Gee whiz, according to Dick things are going so well, one has to wonder why he's so all fired up about the escalation of troops in Baghdad. If it's as rosy as big Dick says, we shouldn't even need a "troop surge."

But more interesting is his criticism of the Democratic Party's challenge to the surge.
Cheney said Pelosi and other Democrats were pushing a policy in Iraq that would "validate the al Qaeda strategy."

"I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we'll do is validate the al Qaeda strategy," Cheney told ABC News.

"The al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people, knowing they can't win in a stand-up fight, try to convince us to throw in the towel and come home and then they win because we quit," he said.

"I think that is exactly the wrong course to go on," Cheney said. "I think that is the course of action that Speaker Pelosi and Jack Murtha support. I think it would be a mistake for the country."
Um Dick, do you mean kind of like what you and the Boy Blunder did in Afghanistan? One can't fail to read that statement and think of the latest news out of Pakistan about the al Qaeda training camps operating just over the Afghani border. I can't be the only one making the connection between our premature exit there and the resurgence of both the AQ and Taliban. If it wasn't so deadly dangerous, it would be funny.

AQ doesn't have to wait for everyday Americans to "lose their will" to fight. All they had to do was wait for the next shiny object to appear and distract the White House with the shortest attention span in the history of our nation.
