At Least We're Consistent

Well, this is special. Dick Cheney is urging and end to the international rift that arose out of our country's insistence on going to war in Iraq on still unproven, probably fabricated reasons. He's unapologetic about our thumbing our nose at the rest of the world, he's unapologetic about the lies he and the other members of the Bush administration told, he's unapologetic about the bullying tactics we've employed, about the diplomatic snubs, and he refuses to acknowledge the real reason we are looking for "Old Europe" to bail us out (we're in deep shit in Iraq and can't pull out on our own).

Perhaps that's the reason the rest of the world won't help us. Until and unless our leaders are willing to engage in an honest dialogue with the world community about how we ended up in this mess and what our true long term goals in Iraq and the Middle East are, it's unrealistic for the rest of the world to even consider climbing into this mess with us. I don't expect that to happen. As displayed in last week's State of the Union address, our leaders aren't even willing to engage in an honest dialogue with the American people.
