    Isn’t the tenth marked with a “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” banner?

    The actual answer is aluminum or tin and you can make up your own joke.

    No one has inflicted more harm on the United States in my lifetime than that pig.

    People who were in the room say that when Cheney and Rumsfeld talked about attacking Iraq before 911, GW Bush had a look on his face that said he had no clue about what was going on.

    I think Cheney is the most evil man ever to get his hands on our government. I used to think that of Nixon but he was a piker compared to Cheney. Even Macnamara was an amateur compared to him.

    Cheney used to work for Nixon.

    Richard Nixon takes office; the war in Vietnam continues to escalate
    Rumsfeld, a congressman from Ill., helps Nixon win and becomes director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, an unpopular liberal program which he ends up vigorously supporting. He is ambitious and has many enemies, but finds a mentor in Nixon.

    Young Cheney flubs his first job interview with Rumsfeld, but quickly impresses him with a memo on how to run and staff OEO. He becomes Rumsfeld’s low-key personal assistant.


    A Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago, Wolfowitz spends the summer working with another student, Richard Perle, and the legendarily hawkish Sen. Henry “Scoop” Jackson (D-Wash.), drafting memos supporting Nixon’s anti-ballistic missile treaty.
    Powell, finishing up his second tour in Vietnam, is now a senior officer. He has come to believe that Defense Secretary Robert MacNamara and the other Pentagon civilians have no understanding of the reality on the ground in Vietnam.
    Originally assigned to a destroyer off the coast of Vietnam, Armitage has been moved to shore duty by his own request. Just two years out of the Naval Academy, Ensign Armitage finds himself leading and training South Vietnamese ambush units.


    Rumsfeld realizes there is no strategy to win Vietnam. He secretly pushes to end the war and tries to get involved with post-war planning. Nixon tells him to concentrate elsewhere.


    Cheney follows Rumsfeld to the White House, but soon moves on to serve as assistant director of the Cost of Living Council. He will stay there until 1973, when he returns to private life as a businessman.

    Nixon wins re-election

    Rumsfeld is still frustrated by his lack of specific duties in the White House. His biggest nemesis, Henry Kissinger, is frustrated too — a new school of thought, nascent neoconservatism, has started challenging Kissinger’s worldview.

    Wolfowitz finishes his Ph.D., writing his thesis on nuclear weapons in the Middle East. He goes to work for the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, helped by his connection to Sen. Scoop Jackson, who now has Nixon’s ear.


    Powell, now widely seen as an up-and-comer, takes a fellowship at the White House and then a job assisting Frank Carlucci, Rumsfeld’s OEO colleague, in the Office of Management and Budget.


    Rumsfeld seeks foreign experience to help him in a later Senate campaign. He gets it: He is named ambassador to NATO. He disapproves of NATO’s sluggishness and begins to develop a hawkish view of the world. Meanwhile, Watergate is unfolding — but, safely out of the country, he remains untainted by it.


    After three tours in Vietnam, Armitage has become a hawk. Nixon and Kissinger’s move toward a Vietnam peace settlement angers him. Armitage is told it’s time to exit the Navy for the good of his career. But he doesn’t want to leave Vietnam, so he joins the U.S. Embassy in Saigon.

    I do not know what kind of a fantasy neocon world you live in, but it certainly ignores both history and facts!

    We won in Vietnam? We lost some 55,000 killed, and hundreds of thousands maimed for life. Soon after we left the North Vietnamese literally conquered South Vietnam. A country that we left with enough combat aircraft to become the 6th largest aircraforce in the world!

    Then, not only does a now united Vietnam not become a pure Communist state, it so angers Mao Tse-tung that he starts a war with North Vietnam some 5 years after Vietnahm is united.

    And now that same Vietnahm is the best trading partner of the USA in all of Southeastern Asia. And in fact many of those same Americans that fought there have now gone back as honored tourists. The Vietnamhese are now so capitalistic that they welcome our money with open arms. The irony of that is simply astonishing!

    By the way, another casulaty of our losing effort in VietNahm was the greatest space program in the history of the world when Nixon (and yes, LBJ also) would rather drop very expensive bombs on rice paddies in South Eastern Asia than fund the likes of a civilian space program that would have the US with colonies on both the moon and Mars by now!
    War is generally the most wasteful and useless activity that mankind has ever so evily thought up. I was one of those generally idealistic workers that placed men on the moon, and my entire salary for one year would not have paid for one of those rice paddy attacking bombs. And with the war in Iraq, we were trying to do the same incredibly stupid thing all over again (only this time we got to bomb the desert intead of rice paddies). Will we EVER learn??
