Do You Get It?

My young daughter gets this. Why don't you?

The U.S. invaded Iraq because it was the weakest country in the region -- weakened by years of U.N. sanctions and weapons inspections, Iraq was a pushover. The U.S. needed another country in the region to put in permanent bases because the Saudis needed the U.S. out of Saudi Arabia because of Arab world objections to a U.S. presence in their holy land. The U.S. needs permanent bases in the Middle East to protect both our oil interests and Israel.

The democracy talk is a smokescreen, just like the Saddam-Osama connection was a lie. We can't leave -- ever. What a fucking nightmare.
