Cheney on Russert's Meet the Press

Interesting question posed over at AMERICAblog --

Cheney on going to war with Iraq: "If on 9/11 they'd had a nuke instead of an airplane, you'd have been looking at a casualty toll that would rival all the deaths in all the wars fought by Americans in 230 years. That's the threat we have to deal with, and that drove our thinking in the aftermath of 9/11 and does today."

You know, I've often felt this way about my neighbor. If he had had a nuke instead of a really loud stereo, I'd be looking at millions of deaths instead of simply being woken up early this morning.

So, can I kill my neighbor?
Remember, this is from AMERICAblog, NOT ME!!! I have never pondered or uttered the question AMERICAblog posed.

But it's a fair assessment of the thinking of the Bush administration.
