U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday declared the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq a "successful endeavour" in a visit to Iraq that was overshadowed by a suicide bombing that killed at least 25 people.
"If you look back on those five years it has been a difficult, challenging but nonetheless successful endeavour ... and it has been well worth the effort," Cheney told a news conference in Baghdad after meeting Iraqi leaders.
TVNL Comment: For Cheny, this is a success. Disaster was the plan. Stealing Iraq's oil was the plan. Creating a situation where the US was forced into spending it's wealth to enrich Cheney's friends in the defense industry was the plan. Invading Iraq has been a success for the people who live on war. It is a success for Cheney.
