In 1992, following the end of the Persian Gulf War, then Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney articulated the Bush (George H.W. Bush, that is) administration's arguments for not invading Iraq. He concluded by saying, "If you get into the business of committing U.S. forces on the ground in Iraq, to occupy the place, my guess is I'd probably still have people there today instead of having been able to bring them home...The bottom line question for me was: How many additional American lives is Saddam Hussein worth? The answer: not very damn many." He has since changed his mind.
