Why did Cheney tell his Republican colleagues they are in deep doo doo?

Republican leaders in Congress received a dire warning on Tuesday from former Vice President Dick Cheney on the ongoing crisis in North Korea.

“We’re in deep doo doo,” Cheney told lawmakers, according to a GOP leadership aide.

Cheney added the current North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, is unpredictable and doesn't share the United States worldview.

One lawmaker present at the session, Rep. Steve Southerland of Florida, said Cheney wore a cowboy hat and "looked really good, spoke really clearly, lucidly.”

Southerland said Cheney spent about 10 minutes in the GOP leadership meeting Tuesday, and didn't give any specific policy recommendations or critiques of how the Obama administration is handling the situation in North Korea.

Cheney talked about the North Korean leader, Southerland said, and shared some of his history dealing with Saddam Hussein, noting "you never know what they're thinking."

    Halliburton must be in line for some more contracts if we attack North Korea.

    Kim might not share our worldview but he's not suicidal. North Korea would no more back up their threats than a junior varsity football player would step to an NFL offensive lineman.

    Cheney knows this, just like he knew Iraq had no WMDs. But why let truth stand in the way of turning a buck.

    "Why did Cheney tell his Republican colleagues they are in deep doo doo?"

    He wasnt refering to his republican colleagues exclusively. He was refering to this nation as a whole.

    He was saying America was in deep doo-doo. You can't turn everything said into meaning what you want it to mean.
