Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have always believed that Cheney is in fact the real power in the US, and Bush essentially a puppet.

Cheney's agenda is rational, in its way, and predicated purely upon US energy security.

I think he is rationally playing the biggest of all poker games, and I think - now that Iraq did not go the way he hoped - he is bluffing.

I don't buy any of the Bush as mad dictator stuff.
