What else is there to add here, it is simple really: if need i) distraction from domestic scandal, ii) a ready source of emergency offshore oil or pushing US E&P companies to drill , or iii) a script for a Hollywood movie provisionally titled "Wag the dog", then just bomb the living crap out of Iraq. Even US presidents (all of them beginning with the first Bush) have figured it out.
Behold, the biggest contribution to the civilized world by the US military-industrial complex and their administration puppets:
- Operation Desert Shield
- Operation Desert Storm
- Operation Provide Comfort I and II
- Operation Southern Watch
- Operation Desert Strike
- Operation Northern Watch
- Operation Desert Fox
- Operation Southern Focus
- Operation Iraqi Freedom
- Operation New Dawn
- Operation [Provide Humanitarian Aid]
P.S. Dear Iraqi people, our condolences.
