From Dick Cheney's Office: An Immoral Suggestion for Iraq

The New York Times ran an article in its Week in Review section this last Sunday called Whispers and Why Nots. According to this article, some genius in Cheney's office, perhaps even Darth Vader himself, is advocating allowing the Shites in Iraq to either eliminate or uproot and displace Iraq's Sunni Muslims. (The article can be read here although site registeration is required ) Bascially what this would mean is that we would have invaded a country, overthrown its government, and allow one group of citizens to engage in ethnic cleansing of another group of citizens. Such a policy would be immoral, stupid, and would haunt American foreign policy for decades to come. Of course, come to think of it, it sounds like something that Bubble-Boy and Darth would come up with.
