Iraq 'success' possible, US says

One question: for whom?

Remember the Delphic Oracle's prediction to Croesus of Lydia: "if you invade Persia, a great empire will fall". Unfortunately, it turned out to be his own.

I'd say success is complete. A very few men and maybe some women (I doubt it though), will have got very rich at the expense of you and me.

Follow the money.

Fact. I saw President Bush say that he would not pull out of Iraq and leave..."all that oil there."

He did not correct himself.

Where is Iraqi oil flowing to these days?

I'd imagine that a lot of the oil is going into the gas tanks of the Iraqi military and the occupation forces.

I've also read that a lot of the violence in Iraq is essentially gang warfare between petroleum smugglers. It's anyones guess who they're eventually selling the petrol on to.
