Or, Dick Cheney Ought To Be Forced To Listen To His Own Speeches
In a recent speech given by VP Dick Cheney while he visited Lithuania's capital, our fearless vice leader stated unequivocally, "In many areas of civil society — from religion and the news media, to advocacy groups and political parties — the government has unfairly and improperly restricted the rights of her people,"
He also admitted, "Other actions by the . . . government have been counterproductive, and could begin to affect relations with other countries."
According to him, "No legitimate interest is served when oil and gas become tools of intimidation or blackmail, either by supply manipulation or attempts to monopolize transportation."
"And no one can justify actions that undermine the territorial integrity of a neighbor, or interfere with democratic movements," to quote Cheney’s words further.
He concluded with the indictment, "There is no place in a [region] whole and free for a regime of this kind," calling a particular government "the last dictatorship” in that corner of the globe.
Stirring words indeed. Of course, he was denouncing a certain Eastern European country, but substitute that one for our own nation ruled by the Bush/Cheney regime and no truer words were ever said. Cheney’s proclamations should be tattooed backwards on Cheney’s bald head so he could read them in the mirror every morning when he shaves. Maybe he would finally be embarrassed.
