Mission Accomplished

Spy Chief: Iraq May Spark Regional Fight - Yahoo! News

Tuesday, at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on global threats, National Intelligence Director John Negroponte said in an unusually frank assessment,"If chaos were to descend upon Iraq or the forces of democracy were to be defeated in that country ... this would have implications for the rest of the Middle East region and, indeed, the world."

He did not go on to add to this self-fulfilling prophecy by adding that it has been our objective for the past 5 years to establish a permanent US presence in Iraq. Any unity between Sunni and Shia threatens this presence, since it's well known that the vast majority of Iraqis want the US to leave. If we can just keep them fighting each other, they won't have the unity to fight us.

Negroponte once served as U.S. ambassador to Honduras during the training and promotion of death squads there, a phenomenon that has recently surfaced in Iraq.
