It is hard to imaging the shame I feel for my nation growing stronger than it has been during these past seven years but this week good old â€œshoot-em-in-the-faceâ€ Dick Cheney helped me to more than just imagine the shame I feel increase. Just days before the holiday on which our nation remembers their fallen soldiers, Dick Cheney was asked to speak at the graduation of our next generation of military officers at the West Point Military Academy. And guess what the ground zero of corruption vice president chose to share with the new military yes men: his criticism of the Geneva Conventions. Can anyone say Nazi Germany?
I hate to say this and I know I am going to get abused over this statement, but I am not one to play politics, so here I go: it is getting very very difficult to support the troops and I no longer support any of the troops who have signed up for the US military after the US invaded a sovereign nation, Iraq. Knowing that Cheney was welcomed to speak at the West Point graduation, as opposed so say, someone who actually served his nation honorably by joining the military at some point during his life instead of getting multiple deferments like Cheney did, really sent it home for me. Then hearing about what he spoke about was the nail in the coffin in which lies my support for the troops. Out of all the respectable former military persons who may have been invited to speak at this year’s commencement, they chose Cheney. Well I say…screw them. They just lost my support.
Are this year’s graduates of West Point idiots and suckers? Are they not aware that the man for whom which they applaud lied to their fellow troops and to the nation when he sent their fellow soldiers to war, to die and kill innocent people? Did they all rise and say â€œThank you sir, may I have anotherâ€ as they showed their masochistic support of a man who betrayed the troops like no other American leader in history?
As the vile criminal, Cheney, who very likely was deeply involved in delivering the attacks of 9/11 to our unformed unsuspecting nation, and who spat upon his obligation to fight for his nation, gave a speech that would have made Hitler proud, protesters were denied their civil rights to free speech and were not permitted to protest our Nazi vice president. I thought the troops were supposed to be protecting our freedom, not cheering the man who is responsible for eliminating it.
Dick Cheney is a enemy of the state. He is in office via election coup which makes him an invader and a criminal. Mountains of evidence exist indicating Cheney’s involvement in the events of 9/11. He clearly was behind the effort to lie this nation into an illegal war and he was the central figure in exposing a covert intelligence agent. And Cheney has been the central figure behind the Bush administration’s assault on the US Constitution. I don’t want to support a military that welcomes a man like Dick Cheney, I want a military that protects us from a man like Dick Cheney! Think about it!
