Quagmire Defined


Do you remember when the administration LIED us into war? Here is an awesome reminder:

Rumsfeld: It Would Be A Short War


"The idea that it's going to be a long, long, long battle of some kind I think is belied by the fact of what happened in 1990"...

"Five days or five weeks or five months, but it certainly isn't going to last any longer than that," he said...

Rumsfeld also told radio listeners it is impossible Iraq does not have weapons of mass destruction. "What it would prove is that the inspections process had been successfully defeated by the Iraqis if they find nothing."

The conflict with Iraq is about weapons of mass destruction, Rumsfeld insisted...

"People say 'Where's the smoking gun?' Well, we don't want to see a smoking gun from a weapon of mass destruction," he said. "With a weapon of mass destruction you're not talking about 300 people or 3,000 people being killed, but 30,000 or a hundred thousand..."

Rumsfeld said the U.S. military at present is capable "to do the job and finish it fast"....
