One thing that hasn't really been mentioned is the Military tatic of training armies.
Why does America want to be responsable for training Iraq's armed forces?
Because the most simple way to defeat any army, is to defeat an army YOU trained.
If you trained them, you know how to defeat them. The reason they can't defeat the insurgency is because they don't know how it operates, they
can't corner it and use it's weakness against it.
A part of the insurgency and everyday Iraqi's that refuse to join the US trained Iraq military and police is because of the fact that they aren't
taking responsability for their country, they are actually acting under US guidelines to control Iraq rather than having US soldiers do it.
In other words, they are acting FOR the US military rather than FOR the Iraqi population and a lot of people in Iraq can see through this.
A part of this 'overthrow' policy in the Middle East is to do exactly this. Destroy a countries army and then rebuild it as per the USA's training
and technique. It's another MAJOR step in being an uncontested world power.
Controlling Oil fields as oil prices rise and pumping becomes harder is another major part of it also.
Think about it. In 20 years if America has overthrown dictators and governments and re-trained armies in various Middle Eastern countries under their
own guidelines, then IF those countries turn on the US or become a road block, it's much much easier to defeat them because you know how they
function, you know their achilles heal and your always ahead of them - you established them.
This is why you'll see permanate bases in these regions. If you look at a map of the Middle East and Google the countries bordering Iran, you'll see
that just about all of them have had recent visits or talks with Rumsfeld and the US about re-opening or upgrading military bases.
They have literally surrounded Iran and the first thing they'll do when the attack starts, is disable it's military and it will also be the first
thing they re-establish when they have control - IF they get that far.
