  •  I think the initial plan... (none)
    was just to fleece the American people. Once Halliburton got their money and billions went "missing," that was really as far ahead as Cheney and Rummy had planned. They made out like bandits but hadn't really thought how they would permanently secure the oil, much less bring democracy! Their planning was just a short term smash and grab. Now that they got their money, maybe they should just skip town for some nice tropical island and stop destroying everywhere else.
    •  Not just Halliburton (none)
      but the folks who build the bombs are making out quite nicely, also.  It's a win-win situation for these bastards.

    •  Achmed Challabi (none)
      He was part of the DC inner circle. He was supposed to be our stooge in satellite Iraq. He would grant the bases and replace Saddam Hussein as our local dictator.  But like all the Bushie's he was incompetent at everything but posturing and lying.
    •  What do you expect? (none)
      What do you expect from a bunch of Chickenhawks, people who NEVER served in the military and have ZERO experience in fighting wars?
