That Dick Cheney

Dear Vice President Cheney:

Please speak more truthfully. As you know, there is no candidate in American politics who seeks to "give up the fight against the terrorists."

Aren't you ashamed of yourself for lying to the American people in an effort to scare them like that for partisan gain?

If you were a credible authority on fighting terrorism, you would have convened your White House antiterrorism committee long before September 11, 2001 caught you in a goof-up that even you couldn't lie and threaten your way out of.

If your leadership were safeguarding our preeminence as peaceful, even-handed, justice serving people, we would not be threatened by militant reactionaries who see us as threats to their homeland security, rights, and natural resources.

Your willingness to politicize the terrorist threat, instead of blunting it, has jeopardized the effectiveness of our covert anti-terror operations by inciting everybody with a gripe into becoming our attacker. This is because you fail to impress anyone as a leader they can trust or as a man of integrity.

Instead, you imply by attacking Howard Dean, Ned Lamont and the people of the United States who oppose widening the armed conflict, that you represent corporate and military interests only, and that you would rather spread conflict than the rule of law under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Do you really believe that terror and money are more potent than God? I suggest you recant and step down before you are impeached, because you are imperiling the rule of law with your delusional belligerence.

Everybody who sends weapons around the world to blow up cities, towns, infrastructure and civilians is a terrorist. The reason you are so unfit for fighting terrorism is summed up by Jesus in the Gospel of Mark 3:23,

"How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is finished! But no one can enter the strong man's house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house."

We seem vulnerable because instead of leading us in the fight against evil, you have secretly delivered us over to be bound by the unrighteous chords of corruption, cruelty and faithlessness.

Waste and devastation are the signifiers of your character. Your profit's qualities are poverty and misery for the world's people, and for the future.

Get out.

Sincerely, Florindo Troncelliti
