So, we didn't find WMD as promised. OK, we changed our objective and kidded ourselves saying we went in to topple a particularly inhumane dictatorship. And by so doing, we could turn the entire Middle East into a giant democracy. That was the neo-con bottom line.
Never mind that logic would lead the US into war with at least half a dozen countries that would similarly qualify as inhumane dictatorship starting with N Korea who actually is close to having or already has WMD.
But wait, this report says there are insurgents in Iraq who keep killing US soldiers. That's not supposed to have happened or continue to happen, right? US went in as liberators, right?
So we are not perceived as "saviors" and "liberators"?? Read this. That's really interesting?
