Dick Cheney Wants Another Fight After 2 Wars

11 08 2008

I thick some leaders need to take cue from Abraham Lincoln who said “I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.” Mr. Tough Guy, VP Dick Cheney is beating another war drum. With unfinished wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Cheney is talking tough about Georgian-Russian war which started last week. In a TV report yesterday, while President Bush made a softer tone that “we strongly condemn the bombing outside of South Ossetia, Dick Cheney said: “Russia’s military action against Georgia (in Europe) must not go unanswered.”

I think such a statement is undiplomatic and should not come from a guy who once avoided behind drafted to war. There are better ways to show solidarity for a country, not by bullying. As for the Russian, they have been put into the back-burner since the end of cold war while United States has been flexing military might all over the world. So a slight provocation gives the former Soviet Republic excuse to come back, a show of force to remind the world that Russia is a super power too, unfortunately at its neighbors’ peril.
