Vice President Cheney beats his swollen gums about Republicans being the party of security given all that is “going on in the Middle East”, when he should be biting his lip. Saudi Foreign minister Saud al-Faisal correctly predicted the consequences of Cheney’s Iraq War and the failure to work with newly elected Hamas.
Rather than listening to the Veep’s brash bragging, American citizens should take him to task for not listening to people with knowledge, our allies in the Middle East. With the U.S. zero for two on al-Faisal’s advice, will we soon strike out again? President Bush and Sec. Rice will meet with Saudi leaders over the weekend on the Israeli revenge inspired war machine’s rolling over Lebanon. My bet is the Bush cabal ignores al-Faisal’s advice once again.
Cheney said “It’s going to be a battle that lasts for a very long time.” This is especially true when Cheney et al ignore regional and international will. When you have friends and consistently ignore their advice, do they remain your friend? Time will show….
