Cheney: war on terror may take decades 

THE United States must be prepared to fight the war on terror for decades to
bring peace to Iraq and the rest of the Middle East, vice-president Dick
Cheney told the army today. 

Speaking to the Association of the US Army, Cheney joined the chorus of Bush
administration officials - including the President - who have tried in
recent days to bolster an American public that has grown increasingly weary
of the war in Iraq. He told the audience filled with military members that
the only way terrorists could win is if the US "lost our nerve and abandoned
our mission". 


He said: "Like other great duties in history, it will require decades of
patient effort, and it will be resisted by those whose only hope for power
is through the spread of violence. 

"As the people of that region experience new hope, progress, and control
over their own destiny, we will see the power of freedom to change our world
and a terrible threat will be removed." 

Mr Cheney did not specify how long he believed US troops would have to stay
in Iraq.
