Cheney is 100% right. Things are not the same everywhere. In fact the Left agrees and then says that we are the bad guys. The US and the UK are nations inhabited by people who create a culture that expresses itself in a specific set of values and laws, for the US expressed through a Constitution. That created a web of laws that helped support a civilization that encouraged trade, creativity, personal liberty and a respect for life. It is protected by laws both domestic and by international treaty. Those who are at war with these nations are not equal parties to a civil dispute. Insofar as their conduct violates the Law of War they are unlawful combatants and should be treated as such.
