Vice President Dick Cheney has once again confused supporting the troops with supporting a surge of troops into Iraq. “Anyone can say they support the troops...But the proof will come when it’s time to provide the money and the support,” Cheney said, referring to a bill that would fund the escalation.

If his administration’s record is any indication, keeping the troops as far away from the maelstrom of Iraq is the best support they could possibly hope for.

AP:

While noting that the House already had passed a nonbinding resolution voicing opposition to Bush’s Iraq policy, Cheney said that “very soon both houses of Congress will have to vote on a piece of legislation that is binding.”

The legislation would, among other things, help pay for the additional 21,500 troops Bush is sending to Iraq.

“I sincerely hope the discussion this time will be about winning in Iraq, not about posturing on Capitol Hill. Anyone can say they support the troops, and we should take them at their word. But the proof will come when it’s time to provide the money and the support,” Cheney said. “We expect the House and the Senate to meet those needs on time and in full.”
