Military misadventure. American bureaucrats in an air-conditioned bubble inadvertently stoked civil war.
The fiasco began before Bremer flew into Baghdad ``best-case scenario,'' imagining ``a war of liberation that would require only modest postwar assistance,' CPA made matters worse through its ignorance, arrogance.
Bremer dissolved the regular Iraqi armed forces, and ``creating legions of new enemies'' in a country where 40 percent of adults were jobless.
Bremer was bent on turning Iraq into what he called ``the first free-market economy in the Arab world.'' They sought to sell off state companies. The Baghdad Stock Exchange needed only a building, a white board and cell phones to reopen;
All the while, the needs of average Iraqi citizens went unmet. Electricity was in short supply. Hospitals were filthy and lacked drugs and basic equipment. Looted classrooms didn't have desks, let alone books and computers.
Bremer proved a pragmatist willing to defy ``his masters in Washington.''
A Democratic White House would have shown any less favoritism, politicization did prompt some appalling appointments.
`Mugged by Reality'
Bremer's top political advisers, , were hardly seasoned Middle East specialists. They included a 24-year-old Harvard graduate ande neocon establishment. None knew Arabic or had any experience in Arab affairs.
. ``We think democracy is easy,'' . a neocons mugged by reality.''

China doesn't need to keep all its money invested in hard- currency debt issued by foreign governments. Why should the authorities be satisfied with a less than 5 percent return on 10- year U.S. Treasuries when they could earn more by shifting some of the money to high-yield investments?

Better still, why not spend some of the cash on stockpiling resources that will be needed in ever-increasing quantities to keep the world's factory churning out everything from toys and electronics to clothes and automobiles in the years to come?

It's a view that is gaining ground within China.

``One trillion U.S. dollars is, of course, a huge number and there are many foreign assets that it can buy.'' .

``For a big and fast-growing developing country like China, there are many needs to be satisfied, such as the continued availability of strategic commodities, which is quite a legitimate area for some strategic allocation of financial resources,''

On Dec. 27, Xinhua, the state-run news agency, cited Vice Premier Zeng Peiyan as saying that a part of the country's foreign-currency war chest will be used to buy mineral resources such as coal, iron and oil.

no doubt about it there is a broadscope progranmme to now wind down the US machine and change the nature of the world towards a one world govt. China has played along and becoming what it has been equiped by conscious policy directed from outside to become.
At the same time Canada, the US and Mexico are about to become one market, one currency, one law. Possibly an equal mass of new China. Its not a new discovery its old plans being fulfilled.

If most of the voters who booted the Republican incumbents in November 2006 did so because of Emperor Bush's war in Mesopotamia, by now they realize the new people under the Capitol dome are going to be the same as the old people. America's two governing parties are debating the length of stay in Iraq and the number of additional troops to be sent to their deaths, but not the legitimacy of the war and the subsequent occupation.
While the Emperors may be replaced, the Empire itself must never be doubted, their reasoning goes.

"Much as some Americans may rightly revile Bush the Lesser, it is worth remembering that his military adventures stood on the foundation of "humanitarian" wars that "liberal interventionists" of Biden's ilk had constructed on the ruins of Yugoslavia. Slovenia and Croatia were a precedent for Bosnia, which was a precedent for Macedonia and Kosovo, which was a precedent for Iraq

The "new way forward" in Iraq has succeeded only in reinforcing the impression thatBush is deaf, dumb, and blind to reason when it comes to Iraq.
Surely Republican party chieftains, contemplating the next election, must be questioning his sanity, albeit not out loud. What we liberated, it turns out, is a Pandora's box of religious and ethnic hatreds that are now culminating in a Hobbesian war of all against all.
