Cheney: Iraq Violence Linked to Election (US mid-terms)
Unbelievable, the depths of crap these jerks will sink into ...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday the increase of violence in Iraq is linked with efforts to influence the outcome of midterm elections in which Republicans are struggling to keep control of Congress.

"It's my belief that they're very sensitive of the fact that we've got an election scheduled and they can get on the Web sites like anybody else," Cheney said. He said al-Qaida and other elements were trying to "break the will of the American people" because "they think we don't have the stomach for the fight long-term."

Asked if the attacks were timed to influence the U.S. elections, Cheney said, "That's my belief."

Eight days before the elections, Cheney sat down for interviews for Fox News Channel's `Your World with Neil Cavuto' and CNBC's "Kudlow & Company."

6. Got news for ya, Dick.
Iraq violence is linked to the cycles of the moon, the direction of the wind, and the sun in the sky. It just is: violence in an illegally invaded country that is now in civil war. It's thanks to YOU, Dick - you and your lying bunch of scumbag neocons.

What an ass.

7. *yawn* Okay, Dickie, whatever.
Do you believe there are fairies at the bottom of your garden, too? Or are you like Rick Sanitorium (sic), in believing that you are a brave hobbit climbing Mt. Doom all alone while the war rages on in Iraqgondor?

:eyes:

9. Let's see if it stops
once the election is over. My bet? Not gonna happen.

I wish the violence would let up, though. It tears me up me to see our service men and women in that hell hole.

12. But if we'd just CANCEL the elections, the terra-ists would be so depressed
They'd give up, democracy would flower and statutes of George W. Bush would rise in every town square from Basra to Mosul and Ramadi to the Iranian frontier.

It's wise ol' Uncle Dick, and I'm sure he'd NEVER lie to us!

14. Redux: Democrats want to kill you
We, the noble upholders of privilege and monarchy, need to remind you that the shirtless bolsheviks are in league with the great hoard of infidels.

Never mind that the Democrats are atheists who hate god, remember that they are supporting the greasy unwhite supporters of a wicked countergod. They'll stop at nothing.
