Re: Yes. it was a triumph...
Indeed, also not mentioned: oil, the petrodollar, strategic regional dominance, great game manoevering against china/russia, de facto control over the world heroin trade... plenty of reasons the psychos-in-charge will feel they got their money's worth. It's only a 'failure' if you're stupid enough to believe the stated aims, as in 'turn [Iraq] into a Western-style democracy'. Has this guy been living under a rock for 20 years or is he just playing dumb for a media gig or new book contract or something?
