More Dick Than You Can Shake a Stick At

Cheney warns against hasty Iraq "pullout"*

By TOM RAUM, Associated Press Writer

A quick withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq could allow victorious Muslim extremists to fan out into other countries, with some militants going to Afghanistan to fight alongside a resurgent Taliban, Vice President Dick Cheney says.

The vice president, just back from a trip that included unannounced stops in Afghanistan and Pakistan, addressed a conservative conference Thursday night where he sharply criticized efforts by some Democrats to restrict funds for President Bush's troop buildup in Iraq or to place restrictions on their deployment.

While noting that the House already had passed a nonbinding resolution voicing opposition to Bush's Iraq policy, Cheney said that "very soon both houses of Congress will have to vote on a piece of legislation that is binding."

The legislation would, among other things, help pay for the additional 21,500 troops Bush is sending to Iraq.

"I sincerely hope the discussion this time will be about winning in Iraq, not about posturing on Capitol Hill. Anyone can say they support the troops, and we should take them at their word. But the proof will come when it's time to provide the money and the support," Cheney said. "We expect the House and the Senate to meet those needs on time and in full."

Full story here.

There seems to be a great obsession with "winning" expressed here. I've got news for you, Mr. Cheney. We "lost" the moment you baboons decided to invade Iraq for no legitimate reason.

*Maybe if his father had "pulled out" the world wouldn't be in quite the mess it's in now.

And the year after that?

CHENEY: "We are in our own last throes. George is in the cell next to mine and we are both hoping that the American people wake up to the threat that has been upon them since 2001. Bunch of ignorant bastards."

BUSH: "You tell `em, Dick! You tell `em I was the greatest king they ever had!"

CHENEY: "Holy mother of God, George! Would you shut up! I'm trying to talk to Rumsfeld!"

GEORGE: "Sorry, Dick".
