Cheney: Why We Didn't Go Into Baghdad During Gulf Storm

This has been out at youtube and other sources.

During the reign of George Bush Sr, Cheney weighed in on why we didn't go into Baghdad during the first war.

He said pretty much the same thing in similar interviews of the period.

1st reason: Other countries wouldn't help out

2nd reason: If you take out Sadaam's government, who would you replace him with? The region is too volatile, "...it's a quagmire if you go that far and try to take down Iraq...."

3rd reason: Casualties: "How many additional Americans is Sadaam worth? And our judgement was not very many and I think we got it right."
