Bit out of date: the war has now been 'won'. (28 April '03)
In the spirit of getting things clear, is it fair to say that the main purpose of the invasion was to use Iraqui oil to keep world oil prices down? And, preferrably - as the, currently under attack, Venezualans say - to destroy OPEC, the oil cartel? You know: saying 'its all about oil' doesn't make things completely clear.
A smaller objective might be sending a signal to US placemen everywhere. The placeman is always trying to sneak out from under your thumb and sometimes he succeeds. It is then necessary to smash him and make the other placemen watch, otherwise he'd have given them ideas. (The US staged the coup that installed the Baath party in Iraq. The CIA man responsible said it was his 'favorite coup'.)
