Hypocrite(s) of the day

CNN was raising another specter of fear today - Chinese military spending is due to rise 17.8% this year, to $44.9 billion. CNN had the audacity to quote Dick Cheney's response to this:

What neither Cheney, nor CNN, bothered to point out to viewers, is that U.S. military spending for 2007 is projected to be $626 billion, 14 times as much. And Cheney dares to lecture China, or anyone else, about not being "peaceful." As if it were China, and not the U.S., that had launched major attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yugoslavia in recent years, not to mention threatening numerous other countries, and carrying out numerous other attacks over the years.
