The mainstream media in the U.S. never fails to astonish. They're tripping over themselves to tell us Dick Cheney's opinion on the Iran Deal. Yes, the same Dick Cheney who has been so consistently wrong about the Middle East.
In fact, the one thing that Cheney actually got right was his statement on how invading Iraq would turn the region into a sea of chaos:
Nevertheless, a "quagmire" would be created, despite Cheney's updated position of "My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators."
Perhaps in an Iraqi citizen's worst nightmare!
Here we are today watching millions of innocent people flee the Middle East as refugees for Europe. Such a sad situation can be laid squarely at the feet of one of the worst foreign policy decisions ever made by the United States government (and there have been many).
The Iraq invasion invited blowback (see Ron Paul here) in a mutation called ISIS. Such a gang did not exist prior to the Iraqi "liberation".
Why is mainstream media peddling Cheney's new book, and inundating us with his prognostications on Iran?
Have they no respect for the American public?
Are we just a bunch of fools in their eyes?
