Cheney seems to be losing the plot.
Dick Cheney seems to be having one of those days. It could be due to all that time spent in the company of the Chimp, in which case stupidity is catching.

First of all he claimed that:
Those who advocate a sudden withdraw from Iraq should answer a couple simple questions. Would the United States and other free nations be better off or worse off with Zarqawi, Bin Laden and Zawahiri in control Iraq? Would we be safer or less safe with Iraq ruled by men intent upon the destruction of our country.
A short while later, when speaking of the American backed Iraqi armed forces he said:
People who denigrate their competence and capability are flat wrong. They’re making a mistake. They either don’t understand the situation or they’re trying to confuse it, but the Iraqi security forces are well respected by the Iraqi people. They’re doing a very good job.
Now, am I the only one to spot that something is wrong with this line of argument? Either the puppet forces are great, in which case they would see off bin Laden, or they are not, but you can't have it both ways.

Actually, what is likely to happen is that the nationalist guerrillas, who seem quite happy to let the jihadists do their thing so long as the occupation continues, will roll up the other bunch of foreigners once the Americans have been driven out.

The "pro war Left" only supports the Iraq war because of the oil and is concerned of Britains overall strategic position as regards other powers such as Russia and China.

Thanks for the link. I had a look at the site and it seems to be run by American veterans of the war against Iraq. Worth looking at, certainly.

I am not quite sure that I understand you first sentence, Anonymous. "The brit blogs are too domimated By the "pro war Left" including this one." But this blog is anti-war and so are most British blogs. There are about six that support it and many of the others, mine included, like to take the piss out of them for it.
