This past Saturday morning Cheney, 71, received a donor heart from
one of the many pigs he bought on eBay an anonymous donor and is recovering in the intensive care unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., 1 after the surgery.
Cheney sentenced himself to death within 5 years, perhaps even as quickly as this year. 2
While Cheney’s impending death may bring some closure to the families of over 100,000 civilian casualties of the Iraqi invasion, it is a bitter disappointment to millions of Americans who wish to see him prosecuted for his part in the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq; Cheney’s approval and support of torture
of anyone who stood in his way when he was without shotgun in Iraq has also been condemned by the international community.
Odds are that Cheney will die alone in Wyoming, barricaded in his home with his beloved weapons…just another disturbed old man.
