Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I list of reasons - pushed by different lobbies - to go into Iraq

  • Implement mad PNAC plans to take over the world.
  • Money to be spent with the military crowd.
  • Regain US dignity after 9/11
  • Make some of the Israel lobby happy
  • Put in place a sympathetic government in control of the oil and strategic position
  • "He tried to kill my Daddy"
  • Put the frighteners on the rest of the world
  • Demonstrate the validity of the high-tech, small force theories of Rumsfeld and co
  • Gain the political advantages of being a War President for Bush and the Republicans

There are lots of reasons for attacking Iraq.

The problem is that the fools completely underestimated the difficulties because they create their own realities.
