No. I think it was Wolfowitz' plan after all: screw the Palestinians. I could never figure out how until Gaza, then the stories about the settlements, and the evictions from East Jerusalem came out in the US.

I don't see the connection between screwing the Palestinians and invading Iraq. What's the logic?

I think they made no plans because they thought the people would be dancing in the streets once they got rid of Saddam, and would then recommence business as usualunder the benevolent eye of Uncle Sam.

They were planning production sharing agreements right from the get go, though.
