We storm Iraq, blow the crap out of what is left of the infrastructure from ’91, and get the evil dictator. Hooray!
Two years later, still see a heavy occupation of Iraq. The new government sees little real power outside of Baghdad, other that the American occupied oil fields. US oil companies flock in and start reaping huge profits with little relief on the US consumer due to “increased risk to oil company personal and equipment.”
The standard of life for the average citizen in Iraq remains the same or less. Their newfound freedoms are ignored by the power lacking government.
What will all of the pro war hawks say? Will they ignore the situation and point to the very small improvements, if any, and inflate them to mask out the true status? Will they say, oh, holy shit, I was wrong? Will they say see, we have not had another major terrorist attack since?
Keep in mind, this is just my ponderings. In my opinion, if the above comes to fruition, the government will simply find some other focus for the sheep like citizens to stare at. Another travesty sent to the white washed history books that no one will read.
