Part of Junior's language about Iraq from the beginning has been that Iraq, eventually, will be a strategic partner with the U.S. in Junior's bumper sticker "war on terror".
This language by Junior just coincidentally follows the neo-conservatives long held doctrine of a permanent U.S. military presence inside Iraq. Just as WMD and "mushroom clouds" language was used to hide the real reason for attacking Iraq in the first place, so too language about Iraq becoming a strategic partner with the U.S. in a non-existent "war on terror" becomes the public reason covering over the real reason, which is, to have a U.S. military presence PERMANENTLY in the center of the middle east.
Here's the preliminary framework under which the truthful reason will be hidden.....
Iraq's government, seeking protection against foreign threats and internal coups, will offer the U.S. a long-term troop presence in Iraq in return for U.S. security guarantees as part of a strategic partnership, two Iraqi officials said Monday.
The two senior Iraqi officials said Iraqi authorities had discussed the broad outlines of the proposal with U.S. military and diplomatic representatives. The Americans appeared generally favorable subject to negotiations on the details, which include preferential treatment for American investments, according to the Iraqi officials involved in the discussions.
The Iraqi officials said that under the proposed formula, Iraq would get full responsibility for internal security and U.S. troops would relocate to bases outside the cities. Iraqi officials foresee a long-term presence of about 50,000 U.S. troops, down from the current figure of more than 160,000. Link
The final chapter of the Iraq crime is well under way now. The reason we attacked and currently occupy Iraq is because neo-con traitors wanted to place the U.S. military permanently inside Iraq to protect U.S. "interests". "...preferential treatment for American investments.." are those "interests". And oil is, of course, what these American investments are primarily chasing.
Problem: Neo-cons, driven by extremist ideology, want unrestricted access to middle eastern "assets", especially oil. Saddam was a tyrant unwilling to give the U.S. what the neo-cons wanted. What to do?
Solution: Mislead Americans about the reason for an Iraq attack, remove Saddam, build 14 military bases, allow an insurgency time and opportunity to form, prop up a "democratically elected" government, then convince that government to enter into a long term "strategic interests" agreement, complete with "preferential treatment for American investments and a permanent U.S. military presence. Then tell all concerned it's for the larger purpose of fighting something called "the global war on terror."
