But isn't it amazing that Cheney acted as a coward back in the day, but now that he has control of a Defense Contractor he is Darth Vader and war is
In order to support the concept of Cheney seeking strictly financial profits in war, onewould also have to buy into the concept that Cheney was
somehow behind 9/11 because following 9/11 the US had every reason to go into Afghanistan. After the move into Afghanistan, why the hell not go ahead
and bomb the hell out of consistant thorn in the ass Iraq?
I don't buy the 9/11 was an inside job crap. I've watched all the little documentaries, I've turned my head the direction the little
documentarians have asked me to turn my head in, I've tried to ignore all the holes and breaks the little filmmakers have asked me to ignore lest
their theories appear even more implausible... and I simply can't connect the dots that the feds were behind 9/11. How can a group so woefully inept
and so horribly incompetent magically pull off the most complex conspiracy in history... and do so in the information age, without being laid bleached
bone bare to the world? Answer: They can't... so logic dictates that sometimes a cigar is just that, a cigar.
So at the point in which 9/11 *ahem* "truth" falls apart for me, I am left with Cheney sitting in an office discussing Afghanistan and Iraq and
deciding to himself "Well hell, if we're going to do this we may as well do it with people I know and trust. Time to call Haliburton." Conflict
of interest? Absolutely! Wrong move? In retrospect, very much so. War mongering? No... primarily because at the point in which Haliburton was
called, war was a given.
Now, if we need to discuss the handling of the war itself, and how that pussy footing ridiculous operation of public relations superceding solid
military warfare policies was entirely botched from the strategic side, I'm right there. I just don't know how much of the assinine "kinder,
gentler" conceptualizations overshadowing the solid idea of simply bombing the hell out of them, never touching a boot to the ground was on Cheney's
