Do you want insight?

Do you want insight? I’ll give you insight. Or at least direct you to where you can get it.

Ari Shavit, in an article entitled “White Man’s Burden”, interviews Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer and Thomas Friedman about the origins of the Iraqi war, the goals of the war and what would happen, G-d forbid, if the US lost the war.

In a nutshell, 9/11 changed everything. The status quo was unacceptable and the neo cons put forward an answer. The American public, and the Administration of George W., bought it . It was an aggressive policy of pre-emption in pursuit of self-defence and values rather then economic self interest. In essence, it aims to transform the Middle East.

And if it failed in its war or ambitions, ….don’t ask. You don’t want to know.

Don’t take my word for it. Read it, you’ll be rewarded.
