Cheney: History will label Iraq war 'brilliant'

Hitler said the same thing about invading Russia. Hitler didn't learn from Napoleon, who also said that history would prove him correct. I hope for our sake, Cheney isn't just lying again.

ā€œMONTOURSVILLE, Pa. -- Vice President Dick Cheney said Friday the invasion of Iraq will go down in history, along with the war in Afghanistan, for its "brilliance."

At an airport rally at a hangar in Montoursville, Pa., Cheney said the U.S. invasions of "Afghanistan and Iraq will be studied for years for their brilliance." ... "Our troops were doing their job," Cheney said as he called Kerry an "armchair general," a characterization the vice president has been using for several days.

Calling Kerry an "armchair general" is a bit ironic coming from Cheney (click for background on his DUI) who, unlike Kerry, never served in the Armed Forces.
