Cheney: “We’re Not Going To Win This Fight By Turning The Other Cheek”

February 4, 2009 at 10:51 am | Posted in American politics | 1 Comment

Dick Cheney is making a good case to be considered the anti-Christ.

Protecting the country’s security is “a tough, mean, dirty, nasty business,” he said. “These are evil people. And we’re not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek.”

Actually, protecting this country’s security is really not a tough, mean, dirty, nasty business. Anyone who thinks so should not be put in charge of protecting this country, frankly.

And how does a believer in Christ reconcile what this man says about protecting this country, that we can’t do it by turning the other cheek (which is what Christ taught those who expressed to be followers of His). At what point do you no longer actually follow Christ? If you no longer follow Christ’s teachings, can you call yourself a Christian any longer?

  1. The problem, as I see it, is that the United States has gone around messing in everyone else’s business for so long now that we’ve earned way too many enemies who aren’t going to rest until we get the blowback they figure we deserve. So, constant vigilance has become the watchword, but only because we’ve brought it on ourselves.

    It’s probably too late to abdicate our position as the world’s policeman without there being some serious consequences happening to our side.
