This is Cheney’s war to grab Iraqi oil. It has lasted longer than the 2 – 3 weeks foretold, and has not paid for itself. It has led to the final breaking up of the Ottoman Empire which should have happened after WW I. Final results yet to be foretold, but will be interesting. Final $ cost yet to be foretold, GWB went into office with E$1 Trillion surplus, left with $2 Trillion deficit.
