Who said Iraq would be a quagmire? Dick Cheney ...

... in 1994.

To be fair, Cheney wasn't the first to say this. Schwartzkopf pretty much said the same thing two years earlier in his autobiography, "It Doesn't Take A Hero" -- right towards the end, when he answered the most frequently asked questions he had received after the First Gulf War. But the general also had a warning that the future was not global but regional conflicts, and the key to winning them would be the ability to manage them smartly -- which Bush and Cheney have not done well at all.
