Darth Cheney, man of peace

Earlier today, the Cheney monster lurched out of its subterranean bunker and surfaced in Sydney Australia to express gratitude for their contribution of fresh Australian meat for the Iraqi grinder. He gave the usual finger-wagging reminder that if the war in Iraq wasn't won, the terrorists would be emboldened worldwide.

Then, forked tongue darting between his fangs, he spit out this criticism of China's anti-satellite weapons test and ongoing military buildup:

“Last month’s anti-satellite test, China’s continued fast-paced military buildup are less constructive and are not consistent with China’s stated goal of a peaceful rise."

Dick Cheney, the peacemaker with the pacemaker. But if I had a neighbour, even a far-away neighbour, who was invading, trashing and taking over some of my closer neighbours' homes, I'd be securing my house too, and putting those "THIS HOME PROTECTED BY ALARM FORCE" stickers in the windows. This wouldn't mean I was getting ready to attack the malevolent, shit-disturbing neighbour who was causing all the trouble, just sending a message that, as they say in the commercial, "this house isn't worth it".
