Dick Cheney - Fear Mongerer

Dick was on the attack again. According to Dick, America will face another terrorist attack on American soil if Kerry is elected President. I assume this is because he'll break down the military, make America passive, ban public ownership of assault weapons, etc., etc. Somehow I doubt that terrorists will attack just because Kerry is president. They are just as likely to attack if Bush is president. They actually might be more likely if Bush wins the election because he is the one that has initiated the attacks in Iraq. But to claim Kerry is more likely to allow an attack is just as bad as a prediction that Gore would have cowered under a table and did nothing in response if he were president during the 9/11 attacks. The truth is that attacks are likely to continue under any president as long as American Foreign Policy is prejudice, destructive and gives no concern to those outside of the U.S. Only when the U.S. stops only going after its own interests at the expense of foreign nations will the threat to America cease.
