Knowing what we know today, the invasion of Iraq was based on falsehoods and was an unnecessary and dangerous diversion from the effort to reduce terrorist attacks on the United States. Muslim anger at the United States is at an all time high. Iraq posed no threat to us and the process of containment was working. Most importantly, Iraq is in chaos, on the brink of civil war, and now a breeding ground for a hundred new Bin Ladens.
Who has benefited from all of this at the expense of over a thousand US soldiers lives and tens of thousands of Iraqi civilian lives? The very arms and energy industries that funded the PNAC:
· Halliburton, once headed by Vice President Dick Cheney
· Bechtel, once headed by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
· Trireme, a defense company started by Deputy Secretary of Defense, Richard Perle shortly before the invasion
