Cheney Unites Iraqi People

Another day, another example of Dick Cheney's leadership. This time, Cheney's gone to Iraq. And he has a message of unity.

The US vice president, Dick Cheney, today arrived in Baghdad to urge Iraqi politicians to step up efforts to end the violence gripping the country[..]

US officials said Mr Cheney's visit to Iraq was an attempt to press Mr Maliki and other Iraqi leaders to do more to achieve reconciliation among factions. "We talked about a way ahead in terms of our mutual interests," he said.

The US vice president also met Iraq's Kurdish president, Jalal Talabani, Sunni and Shia vice presidents, and other government and political leaders. Aides said he wanted to emphasise that ending the conflict in Iraq could not be achieved by military means alone.

The terrorists must be quaking in their boots. Their strategy has been to try to stop freedom's spread by dividing Iraqis (and Americans), but now that Cheney is there, it is likely that the division they hoped to sow will soon fail, and possibly backfire upon them.

And in fact, contrary to what we hear in the liberal media, progress is already being made.

[Cheney] said based on conversations he had throughout the day, Iraqi leaders felt that sectarian violence was "down fairly dramatically."

ALWAYS decline an offer to accompany Dick Cheney on a hunmting trip. Just common sense.
