America's real war aims in Iraq
By Justin Raimondo
"......As I have been saying for months – or is that years? – our real war aims have nothing to do with stability, democracy, or finding "weapons of mass destruction" that never existed in any case. Our goal has always been to plunge the Arab and Muslim nations of the Middle East into chaos, the better to move in, take control, and ensure the two main objectives of our foreign policy: access to oil, and security for a Greater Israel. A stable Iraq makes achieving these two goals more unlikely, while the U.S. occupation of Iraq – extended into the indefinite future – gives us many more options, including the option to extend the war beyond Iraq's borders – which has been our real goal all along."
