Early Warning Not Heeded

I usually don’t post political statements in my blog, but this one just bowled me over. This is a video clip of an interview with Dick Cheney in 1994, telling why invading Iraq was a bad idea then and giving detailed predictions of what would have happened had we done it. He believed it to be a bad idea then, and yet here we are, and ALL of the predictions he made for the horrible outcome have come true. IF HE WAS AGAINST IT THEN, WHY DID HE STAND WITH BUSH TO INVADE THEM NOW??? THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE GETTING INTO AND KNEW THE CONSEQUENCES. And yet, we’re still stuck in their mess.

He admitted that none of the Arab forces who stood with America during the Kuwait crisis would stand with us for an invasion of Iraq. He admitted that if we went in there and took out Sadaam Hussein that there would be nothing to take the government’s place, it is a very volitile part of the world. He also admitted that with too many of the neighboring nations wanting pieces of Iraq, it would create instability in the sovreignty of the bordering nations. He also admitted that going after Sadaam Hussein was not worth the number of casualties that would result from the invasion. NOTHING HAD CHANGED IN THE 9 YEARS BETWEEN HIS STATEMENT AND THE INVASION OF IRAQ IN 2003. FOUR YEARS LATER, WE’RE SEEING HIS PREDICTIONS COME TRUE. WHY DID THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN? He’s not a Vice President, he’s Nostradamus with a hunting problem.
