What Iraq is really about

What Iraq is really about

From an LA Times Op-ed

The new map would be drawn with an eye to two main objectives: controlling the flow of oil and ensuring Israel’s continued regional military superiority.

Indeed, the hard-liners in and around the administration seem to know in their hearts that the battle to carve up the Middle East would not be won without the blood of Americans and their allies. “One can only hope that we turn the region into a cauldron, and faster, please,” Ledeen preached to the choir at National Review Online last August. “That’s our mission in the war against terror.”

From Webster’s: Cauldron: 1: a large kettle or boiler, 2: something resembling a boiling cauldron <a cauldron of intense emotions>.

Tell me, why would anyone deliberately want the Mideast to be even more of a cauldron than it already is? Or to say that such a cauldron could somehow help fight terrorism? This is deranged thinking, there is no other word for it. And such people now control our government.

The war will start soon. Let’s get ready.
