U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney met with President Shimon Peres on the sidelines of the Ambrosetti forum on the edge of Italy's Lake Como on Saturday, telling the Israeli leader that Russia is selling arms to Damascus and Iran with the clear knowledge that they are being channeled to Hezbollah and terror groups in Iraq.
The American vice president later reiterated these remarks in his address at the economic conference, saying that "Russian arms dealing in the Middle East has endangered the prospects for peace and freedom in the region."
And the American funneling of arms and significant amounts of money to Israel have NOT "...endangered the prospects for peace and freedom in the region."?
Apparently, in his absence of a capacity for true critical thinking, Cheney is incapable of appreciating the delicious irony of that remark.
