an existential crisis

I can't believe I let this comment from Dick Cheney pass me by...

"This is an existential conflict. It is the kind of conflict that's going to drive our policy and our government for the next 20 or 30 or 40 years. We have to prevail and we have to have the stomach for the fight long term."

So now that jackass has admitted what many of us opposed to the bogus "war on terror" have been claiming for years now...that a "war" on a non-specific enemy is essentially a war on whomever we want it to be for as long as we want to wage it. Well, he only partially reveals the truth. He doesn't get into the fact that the only real benefactors of this kind of endless war are the corporations and industries that provide the parts and pieces - hardware, software, intelligence, security and so on. But that's the next logical inference, wouldn't you think...?

And who's this "we," kemosabe? As I recall, you skirted the draft for Vietnam at least six times. It's definitely easier to have the "stomach for the fight" as long as you're not the one doing the fighting, isn't it? Between he and Dubya, we're being led around by the nose by two total chickenshits-in-chief.

Oh, and while Big Dick was on Fox News this past weekend asking the members of congress to ask themselves whether or not their opposition to the proposed "surge" in Iraq would be "helping the troops," a new Bush administration policy was put into effect. And I can't help but wonder whether Vice Dick considers this "helping the troops"...?

The ability of the neo-cons to speak out of both sides of their mouths is just...sickening.
