"They're not supporting the troops. They're undermining them," Cheney told a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition at the oceanside Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, Fla., about 60 miles north of Miami. He also said it was a myth that "one can support the troops without giving them the tools and reinforcements they need to carry out their mission."
(I would remind one and all that the Republicans in congress were singing from a different page of the hymnal when President Clinton intervened in Kosovo to stop a genocide.)
But since he brought up supporting the troops, what the hell? I'll play.
- How supportive was it to dismiss the Generals who spoke up early with opinions that ran counter to what the architects of this clusterfuck wanted to hear?
- How supportive was it when Rumsfeld was using a signature machine to sign the letters to the families of the fallen?
- How supportive was it to half-ass the job and cause half of the casualties because the ammo dumps weren’t secured?
No, Dick. Mr. five-deferments, other priorities chickenhawk, do not presume to tell us how we don’t support the troops, you fetid, cowardly piece of human offal. Fucking resign for health reasons already.
Making the way for Vice President Powell?
