the subject is cheney, so it is cheney I am referring to, and I agree with Juan, that is my take
on the subject, after following all of the bloodshed for all of that time.

Churchill and any of the others is for another time, and I was just a little girl, did not have
a direct opinion, didn't pay attention like I did with this particular 'war', I paid very close
attention.

"Insurgents", Isn't that what people defending themselves against the U.S. are called?

Have you any idea why Bush abandoned Afghanistan and went into Iraq? I don't think Bush has any idea either.

JLM Churchill didn't start W.W. 2

Dick got a heart transplant. At age 71. Did he shoot the donor himself or did he have someone else do it? Is he going to use the old one as a doorstop?

I wanted to write something a little tongue in cheek, get a little laugh going but, the more I thought about it the angrier I got. At 65 a lot of people are told that their age is a disqualifier for this kind of surgery. Who paid for it? Was this a part of his "government health care"? That stuff that doesn't work and that would destroy our nation if it were given to the common people?

hindsight is 20/20, but you can also look at it this way, hindsight is knowing how something happened,
as one has followed it very carefully.

Knowing it was going to happen didn't give the information as to 'how' it was going to happen.

Seeing it all go down right before my eyes gave me that information.

Absolutely not, but a lot of people still accused him of being an old war monger.
I think Iraq was poorly conceived, but we can't be sure as we have no idea how many more civilians Saddam would have killed had he been allowed to continue. Whether the bastard had W.M.D.s at the time we don't know but we do know from his past shenanigans he was capable of having them. As far as insurgents go they were mostly Sunnis and S*itties blowing each other up. Actually had nothing to do with the war per se. They've hated each other for centuries.

At least as the media decided to present it to you.

yes, and one has to sift thru many many different medias before coming to a conclusion as to just
how to receive it, and I did that.

The good thing about the transplant is that the world knows for sure he has a heart.

Not having wars is the survival solution, greed for material riches is the reason there are wars at all, it's one cog in the supply/demand gearset

I thought with Cheney it would be called an implant, not a transplant... (yeah I know some of you were already going there but I still had to try)

Not trying to be facetious or nasty, but I'm actually surprised at his age they would do a transplant: I thought there were age limitations on this type of surgery (born of the mindset of using the organs on younger patients who a) might recover easier and b) might live longer when everything is said and done).

If money and power can't buy you a heart, what can it buy you.

In post #14 I commented on the criteria (years ago) for getting a heart. At that time people past their 30s stood very little chance of getting one. What has happened to change that criteria?

I was hesitant to suggest that as it means another profession has gone for a sh*t, and you can't blame Dick, he's just doing what he can to stay alive.

And I wonder if the "right dick" up here needed one he would probably get it!
