Cheney admits was wrong about "last throes" in Iraq

Well done for admitting it but FFS any idiot can work out that defeating an insurgency takes political will, a plan, an integrated approach, boots on the ground and TIME.

Best.

G.
Did it take him 2 years to 'realise' this? How many cadavars have piled up in the intervening period to make him change tack?

I suppose when you're the one dishing out shock and awe violence from a distant, luxuriously appointed office, you'll be the last to realise that it's gonna get people a bit peeved and a tad hot under the collar.

What a twat, though.

He only admitted he was wrong back then. He'll come back and state at speaking engagements or political rallies that they are in their last throes now and the idiots will eat it up, just like they cheered at Mitt Rommel's doubling Gitmo or Rudy Guiliani's doubling torture comments.

Ok, who broke the DB server? Took me all day to post.
