Hey, look it's "Old Unindicted" and his ever-pending sixth deferment

Pulse-less Dick Cheney is still getting news channel airtime they would otherwise devote to Ann Coulter:
Earlier on Monday, President Barack Obama had explained that U.S. officials asked Iran to return the RQ-170 Sentinel surveillance drone. "The right response to that would have been to go in immediately after it had gone down and destroy it," Cheney told CNN's Erin Burnett. "You can do that from the air. You can do that with a quick air strike, and in effect make it impossible for them to benefit from having captured that drone."
Yes, that would have made things all better, what better solution than a Dick Cheney endorsed one? Of course, there is this little problem:
The U.S. violated Iran’s airspace and must be held accountable for infringing on international laws, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in Tehran today.
That's undoubtedly true.

I know Dick Cheney and most every other Republican (and too many Democrats) don't think International Law applied to American actions, just to everyone else, but that makes a bad legal defense -- amongst other obvious moral problems a Dick Cheney doesn't care about.

Aah, now the regrets. He chose Iraq because she was easy, she was attainable, and he was under the mistaken impression she had a substantial dowry. He got what he wanted, and it ruined his life. Iraq may have been easy to conquer, but she was impossible to live with.

So now we have to listen to this old man’s querulous whining about how it would have been so much better with Iran. He had his time, he made his choices. It’s a little late to be thinking about what might have been, old man. Take a pill. Not the blue one. You take too many of those, have you no shame?

Once again, Cheney would have much less access to the press if he were in jail right now.

Had your chance, America. Live with the consequences....

was it the bush misadministation that designed it w/out a self destruct ap?

Ah yes. Just like when Cheney and Bush got all bad ass with the Chinese when one of their fighters collided with one of our spy planes! We went in with all guns blazing! Oh, that's right - we sent a letter of apology and pretended it was a "letter of regret." China sent us back our dismantled plane when they were through with it. We looked weak as it was obvious that we didn't want anything to get in the way of our cheap imported goods.
