Irony


Does anybody else see the irony in Dick Cheney saying the following in the Wall Street Journal this week:

As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama’s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. “If a J.V. team puts on Lakers’ uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant” (January 2014). “[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated” (August 2013). “So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding” (September 2011).

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march.

In case you don’t get the irony, let me help…

“Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

Seriously, Mr. Cheney (and your daughter who “co-wrote” the op-ed with you), you need a reality check.  Just like all of your friends and fellow neo-cons who think what is going on in Iraq requires U.S. intervention.  LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES, YOU JACKASS!
