To say that Dick Cheney or the Bush administration still has any credibility is a large stretch of the imagination. It was Dick Cheney (former CFR president) who in 1994 condemned any invasion of Iraq under Clinton, and called it a “quagmire”. Watch the sort video link bellow:
In case you were wondering what the word “quagmire” means, here is the definition: A difficult or precarious situation: a predicament.
It is reported in 2007 by prisonplanet.com that Dick Cheney ordered Neocon outlets like Fox News to sell a war with Iran. http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2007/040907_cheney_orders.htm
In early 2000 Project for a New American Century made this startling and yet ominous prediction:
“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harbor…””And advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”— from “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century,” September, 2000.
It has been, and always will be the Neoconservative thinking process in order for the United States to maintain and expand its global empire it must a. excert its influence through force; b. preplan invasions and; c. use propaganda as a tool of furthering their agenda.
“As the 20th century draws to a close, the United States stands as the world’s preeminent power. Having led the West to victory in the Cold War, America faces an opportunity and a challenge: Does the United States have the vision to build upon the achievements of past decades? Does the United States have the resolve to shape a new century favorable to American principles and interests?”
What’s so important about PNAC you ask? Well, here is a quick list of the men involved:
Jeb Bush – brother of George W. Bush Dick Cheney – Vice President under George W. Bush Donald Rumsfeld – Secretary of Defense 2002-2006 Paul Wolfowitz – Deputy Secretary of Defense
The drumbeats by Neocons still persits. In a press release on the Trey Grayson website, former Vice President Dick Cheney released this statement:
“I’m a lifelong conservative, and I can tell the real thing when I see it. I have looked at the records of both candidates in the race, and it is clear to me that Trey Grayson is right on the issues that matter – both on fiscal responsibility and on national security.”
Whatever, Dick Cheney! Cheney is a classic example that the Neoconservative agenda is alive and well, and this annoying belligerent blabber mouth isn’t going away any time soon.
