Darth Cheney Warns Iran

On carrier in Gulf, Cheney warns Iran -
“Vice President Dick Cheney used the deck of an American aircraft carrier just 150 miles off Iran’s coast as the backdrop [yesterday] to warn the country that the United States was prepared to use its naval power to keep Tehran from disrupting off oil routes or ‘gaining nuclear weapons and dominating this region.’”

"[T]he symbolism of sending the administration’s most famous hawk to deliver the speech so close to Iran’s coast was unmistakable." via Think Progress
