Cheney said in the debate with John Edwards that the reduction of suicide bombings in Israel is because we invaded Iraq.
"The suicide bombers, in part, were generated by Saddam Hussein, who paid $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers. I personally think one of the reasons that we don't have as many suicide attacks today in Israel as we've had in the past is because Saddam Hussein is no longer in business."
That's an interesting idea. There might be a slight problem, though, with the whole notion that we went to war to make Israel safer.
Clearly Iraq isn't any safer. According to the Post "Car bombings in Iraq have become commonplace in recent weeks; U.S. officials counted more than 70 during September."
Why is it that we're losing 2 to 3 GIs a day through car bombings and road side explosives? It is pretty much established [Final Weapons inspectr's Report] there was no threat from Iraq, so the only reason left is that we were follwing orders from Israel, right?
