Dick Cheney on occupying Baghdad

"It would be dangerous. We’d get mired down inside Iraq in a conflict that’s been raging for generations in the interests of trying to dictate who’s going to govern in Iraq. That is not something that we are prepared to see American forces do." - Dick Cheney

"For the US to get involved militarily in determining the outcome of the struggle over whose going to govern in Iraq strikes me as a classic definition of a quagmire." - Dick Cheney

Huh? These words were spoken by Cheney in a 1991 NPR interview. Check out this NPR report.
