Richard Cheney, Always Planning a War for Someone Else to Fight
You've got to hand it to former vice president Richard Cheney. Mr. "I had other priorities," as he explained using five deferments to stay out of the military during the Vietnam War, likes to plan wars for other people. It's obviously his comparative advantage. Reports Haaretz:
Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney urged the United States to bomb a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor in June 2007, the New York Times reported on Wednesday, quoting excerpts from Cheney's autobiography due to be published next week.
According to Cheney, former U.S. President George W. Bush refused his demands and opted for a diplomatic approach after other advisers expressed apprehension. Foreign reports indicate that the Syria reactor was later bombed by Israel in September 2007.
Most neocons have only one regret in life: leaving even one foreign country free from U.S. bombing, invasion, and occupation.
