"Last Throes" = Another 12 Years

Donald Rumsfeld, June 26, 2005:
We're not going to win against the insurgency. The Iraqi people are going to win against the insurgency. That insurgency could go on for any number of years. Insurgencies tend to go on five, six, eight, 10, 12 years.
Donald Rumsfeld, February 7, 2003:
It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months.
And one more, for laughs:

Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003:
[M]y belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. ... I think it will go relatively quickly ... weeks rather than months.
Dead Americans: 1739.

"P" for Preznit.

This whole "last throes" bit reminds me of Clinton's definition of "sexual relations".

Wonder how long the "last throes" of Monica's cigar shenanigans lasted before they finally called it quits?
