Cheney: Friends no longer trust us, enemies ‘don’t fear us’

cheney obamaFormer Vice President Dick Cheney faulted the Obama White House’s handling of Middle East politics, saying the U.S. presence in the region had been “significantly diminished” in recent years. “I think our friends no longer count on us, no longer trust us and our adversaries don’t fear us,” he said during an interview on Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

He expressed skepticism that the Obama administration would be able to force Iran to comply with demands that it show its nuclear program is peaceful. Asked if military action against Iran was “inevitable,” Cheney said he had “trouble seeing how we’re going to achieve our objective short of that.”

    Obama reminds me of a green peace leader, wants to move the world forward, create jobs, feed the people, but don’t you dare kill sheep cut down a tree or lets just put mirrors to catch the rays.. well simple with the number of humans on this small round blue world that just is not an option. So Obama the only way for us to move forward is to take about 4 billion of the total….harsh but that is life…we be eating each other if we get to 10 billion so best to stop it now…I bet DICK would make a better thinker and leader..

      hehehehe … yes master09 … well, maybe not thinker. However ….
      A CLASSIC CASE – Worth Thinking About ….
      The best (worst) example one can think of, about idiot ‘Politicians’ and those infected by the ‘Greenies’ concept – most recently – is an event near Toronto Canada.
      Thanks to ‘developers’ paving farmland, and an influx of more bodies from somewhere (maybe Lebanon ?? ;), housing is built, and there is (who would have thought) a little shortage of electricity. Bringing that in from many miles away is costly, not only because wires are needed, but because energy drop per mile can be a significant cost-factor. It would be better to not need to charge citizens so much for electricity too – especially simply for actually delivering it while losing it – right?
      SO … Brains work, decisions are made, and ‘tah-da’ a Great Idea is born!! Thumbs UP.
      Build 2 generating stations close to where they are plonking in houses – where it is needed.
      High-Tech, cleanest possible efficient gas-fired plants imaginable – since Canada also has a bunch of natural gas to fiddle around with. (a lot of which has just been burned off for many years while extracting oil with wells … might as well sell it somewhere.)
      Contracts with builders are made. ‘Insurance Clauses’ built in. Work begins.
      (Politicians tout the ‘new jobs’ they create.)
      And they keep building houses on the arable land too ….
      About the time the first plant is almost done, and the second well under way, some ‘newbies’ in the houses are infected with the ‘Green-Bug’. A ‘protest’ gets under way – based on fear.
      UNFORTUNATELY, at the same time, an ‘ELECTION’ looms. Oh, Hell.
      The Reigning Fiberals (oh, was that supposed to be an ‘L’?), who made the contracts in the first place, feel they are in danger of losing a couple of ‘seats’ because of ‘the fear’. And as we know, the ‘Main Reason’ for Elections is to HOLD POWER … not necessarily to deliver the electrical kind. (The plans of Brains don’t matter now.)
      Nor, necessarily, are elections to do something right ‘FOR’ citizens.
      SO …To the Greenies a promise is made, the contracts are cancelled, and the Fiberals ‘win’.
      They say; ‘We will move the plants to someone else’s city.’ (Miles away – Fewer electors there)
      And … they ATTEMPT to hide the paperwork. (figures … Fiberals)
      Meanwhile, the Contractor Sues for the work stoppage, etc, as per the ‘CONTRACT’.
      The plants – one of which might have produced electricity in a month after years of building – begin to be dismantled under another ‘Contract’.
      Idiot Greenies are ‘happy’. They have YET to see the EXTRA COST on their BILLS for this.
      SOME PEOPLE WITH BRAINS WANT FACTS. They dig into it. Fiberals begin to learn about ‘Real Politics’ … Citizens WANT to know how their money is WASTED. (usually too late … yah)
      After many Lawyers, Contactors, Arguments, Detectives for finding hidden paperwork, and final Court Cases, it will cost ALL the citizens (not just stupid Greenies) at least FIVE TIMES the amount (all estimates on re-builds not in yet) that the original generating stations would have cost. AND there is still not enough electrical power close to the homes. Waste again.
      Some Politicans have been, and may be, ‘shuffled’ … next election … hopefully.

      I KNOW !!
      I KNOW … Doesn’t it sound like Lebanon ??? Hahahahahahhaa
      (Did anyone say ‘Educated Electorate’? 😉

          But the comparison was just too good to pass up.

    A slight loss from the time of ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt, I think …
    “Walk softly but carry a big stick.’ he said … mostly in reference to snake-hunting, I think. But it became a powerful thought in political minds …. yet I think they forget the ‘walk softly’ part too often.
