Well, this should insure that the “netroots” become virtual human shields for Ahmedinejad:
“Throughout the region our country has interests to protect and commitments to honor,” Cheney said. “With two carrier strike groups in the Gulf, we’re sending clear messages to friends and adversaries alike. We’ll keep the sea lanes open. We’ll stand with our friends in opposing extremism and strategic threats. We’ll disrupt attacks on our own forces. We’ll continue bringing relief to those who suffer and delivering justice to the enemies of freedom.”
Cheney added, “And we’ll stand with others to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons and dominating this region. These are important duties, and they must all be done at the same time.”
The vice president spoke two days before Iran’s hard-line president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was scheduled to visit Abu Dhabi.
After his visit to the carrier, which was cruising about 150 miles off the Iranian coast, Cheney flew by helicopter to Abu Dhabi to meet and have dinner with Emirates Crown Prince Muhammad bin Zayed al-Nahyan.
I predict another kidnapping withing the month.
