    THE question that I'm sure you'll avoid:
    Is Cheney wrong?

    So what? What's your point, that the world changes and a thinking man (or woman!) can reevaluate his (or her!) position? I totally agree with that.

    My point is what we agreed on....We have nothing to gain by keeping thousands of troops pinned down in Afghanistan......It benefits no one but our enemies by giving them an easy target.

    Oh! I thought you were making a comment about how Cheney changed his mind from 1994 to 2003 about Iraq.

    If there's anyone who should critique Obama's lack of performance with Afghanistan, it is certainly not Cheney, who, time-and-time again, made horrible decisions regarding war strategies when he was Vice President.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    THE question:

    "Make no mistake. Signals of indecision out of Washington hurt our allies and embolden our adversaries," Cheney said while accepting an award from a conservative national security group, the Center for Security Policy.

    "The White House must stop dithering while America's armed forces are in danger," the former vice president said. "It's time for President Obama to do what it takes to win a war he has repeatedly and rightly called a war of necessity."

    Is Cheney wrong?

    I tossed that video in because the topic is about Cheney & the value of his military recommendations which contradict themselves depending on who's in power at the time.
    Cheney is a politician & does things for political reasons....period. (my opinion...of course)

    I think Cheney is wrong now for wanting to send more troops to Afghanistan. (he was right about Iraq....back in 1994)
