Cheney afraid to speak in “Dangerous” Canada

Dick Cheney has cancelled a talk in Toronto because, he says, “Canada is too dangerous.”

This is the ultimate chicken hawk, who had 5 deferrals from serving in Vietnam, and who sent thousands of US troops to protect his oil in Iraq, where 30,000 were seriously wounded and nearly 5000 killed.

But, you know, he might be scalded by Tim Horton’s coffee or fatally confused when drivers stop to let jaywalkers cross the road.

Let’s take up a collection to send him to speak in Baghdad, which he made dangerous for millions of Iraqis.

  1. Canada isn’t dangerous. It’s just too dangerous for Cheney to go there, because he might be arrested as a war criminal.

  2. I think Mr. Cheney is afraid of being called to account for his numerous war crimes. But don’t worry Dick, the sycophantic Conservatives led by the collaborator in chief PM Harper have got your back. They would never support any kind of accountability for executives in government.

  3. it’s amazing how tough the coward got with someone else’s life …

  4. I put Cheney right up there with Joe and Avigdor Lieberman. I hope the day will come when Cheney will be convicted of war crimes, along with his little buddy W.

  5. One recalls the way he sequestered himself after 9/11 to the point that it became a national joke. The man is a physical coward. And he apparently insists on having Secret Service protection at a time when there aren’t enough agents to protect the President adequately.

    • Jonah and Bill Kristol should be on the first bomber that enters Iran’s air space. You can bet they would be screaming like little girls!

  6. I’m in for this. Kandahar would also welcome his presence, I imagine.

  7. He must be getting his intel from the same people that reported the WMD in Iraq. However things like shooting someone while hunting are taken very seriously.

    :)

  8. Could it be that he is worried he might get shipped of to Hague? I seriously doubt Canada would, but Cheney is not known for his testicular fortitude.

  9. Perhaps he means dangerous as in, he might be arrested for war crimes.

    (Note: I don’t know how likely that is for Canada, but I would think that traveling to another country would open that up as a possible outcome for him.)

  10. I wonder how afraid Cheney will be of showing up on a Boston area college campus. Commencement speaker anyone?

  11. Well, Toronto was a dangerous place for American troops who came to town during the War of 1812 to loot and burn. The powder cache at Ft. York blew up because of a slow fuse lit by retreating British regulars. Numerous foreign invaders were rendered hors de combat and those still able to walk left for home a short while later.

  12. I can’t blame him. A few years ago, I was in Toronto and it was shortly after George Bush (the Lesser) and Bill Clinton had come to speak at the convention center down town. There was a big pile of shoes that people had thrown at Bush…

  13. ‘This is the ultimate chicken hawk, who had 5 deferrals from serving in Vietnam, and who sent thousands of US troops to protect his oil in Iraq, where 30,000 were seriously wounded and nearly 5000 killed.’

    That’s just counting the Americans.

  14. Gee, when he was trying to evade the draft during Vietnam, Canada must have been looking pretty good to him.

  15. Bring ‘im on! or send him to the Tar Sands, invite him out for a little walkabout.

    What an utter coward.
