AP: Cheney: Iraq Violence Linked to Election (again)
Cheney: Iraq Violence Linked to Election

WASHINGTON Oct 30, 2006 (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."

2. Like I've said
If violence increases because Republicans are in office isn't that a good reason to vote them out?

6. Obviously Iraqis want the U.S. to leave
If you can believe their polls and the constant attacks on anything American.

Hey, Crashcart...you're a moron, just like your puppet! Sheesh! :eyes:

5. Is this kind of logic the reason the WH wants Saddam sentenced
on Nov. 5th? Yet they claim that they don't control what happens with Iraqi politics or the Saddam trial.
