I agree with Rich, though might add the following opinion:
- Oil, Oil, Oil. To the extent possible; Controlling who has it, who pumps it, who gets it, how much it costs - especially as politically potentially
&/or unreliable sources are growing on the international scene (Venezuala, Iran, Russia, etc.).
- Payback to Saddam et al for making an attempt on the 'Ole Man Bush's life.
- Redemption for not finishing the job the first time around.
- As per wildbob and Rich, above. Very astute and right on the money IMHO. Whether it'll work or not is another question entirely. Let's just
admit that so far, "Not all has gone according to plan...".
BTW - any guesses why we're not "wasting time and resources" on places like Darfur, Pyonyang, or Sri Lanka? These places are just as desperate
for 'democracy' if not more so. Answer: they have NOTHING we need or want - nothing worth fighting for... Sad perhaps, but true...
