Maureen Dowd’s comments in her column “Repent, Dick Cheney” are overdue — though too easy, not only on the former vice president but also on former President George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld.
The mentioned “gentlemen,” who in their youth diligently avoided combat in Vietnam but urged thousands of others to fight and, if necessary, die for the biggest scam ever, meticulously planned and brought to fruition the second Iraq war.
The U.S. “won” but accomplished nothing but death and the maiming of Americans and Iraqis whose numbers are incalculable.
A congressional medal of horror ought to be bestowed on that triumvirate of chicken hawks.
It is commendable that Dick Cheney has no regrets. Neither did Saddam Hussein.
