The following 1994 video clip, tells us that V. P. Cheney knew what would happen in Iraq. So what happened in the next 9 years to cause him to decide that the "price" would be worth it -- at least to him?

One theory advanced by William Clark is that Saddam Hussein "sealed his fate when he announced in September 2000 that Iraq was no longer going to accept dollars for oil being sold under the UN’s Oil-for-Food program, and decided to switch to the euro as Iraq’s oil export currency." It is worth noting that, by June 2003, Iraq oil transactions had been switched back to U. S. dollars despite the dollars' falling value.
