Apparently Cheney has been planning for WW III for a long time. For now, Bush is our dictator, and Cheney is managing the war effort. What's the confusion?
I was being a smartass!!
You have summed it up very nicely Arjuna!!
I'm not really confused; however, I object to the "chain of command."
Very obnoxious, but that is Mr. Cheney's style.
Seems a little backwards to me.
