Cheney Diplomacy


I missed this funny comment reported Wednesday by WaPo. It seems VPOTUS, Dick Cheney, while traveling in Asia, requested the Chinese turn over information on their military weapons expenses. The US fears the Chinese are secretly amassing an inordinate amount of military weaponry and demanded a thorough accounting. This was the response from Chinese Foreign Minister, Qin Gang:

"If someone always tears through your clothes and even wants to lift open your underwear, saying 'Let me see what's inside', how would you feel? Would you want to call the police?"

Yes. Somebody PLEASE call the police! But, as others have noted, Dick Cheney IS the police. Therein lies the trickiness of our situation.
