The headache's just beginning for America
Straits Times, Singapore - 4-7-03
THE awesome task facing the United States in Iraq today was summed up by
Vice-President Dick Cheney in 1992, when, as Secretary of Defence, he
explained why he didn't go for Baghdad: 'If we'd gone to Baghdad and got
rid of Saddam Hussein - assuming we could have found him - we'd have had to
put a lot of forces in and run him to ground some place. Then, you've got to
put a new government in his place and then you're faced with the question of
what kind of government are you going to establish in Iraq? Is it going to
be a Kurdish government or a Shi'ite government or a Sunni government? How
many forces are you going to have to leave there to keep it propped up?'
Welcome back to the future, Mr Vice-President.
