This has to be the stupidest war ever started. I can understand the first Gulf War. But this invasion of Iraq in search of 'weapons of mass destruction' when there never were any has to take the cake on the list of military stupidities; of which there are many.

Where did we see this before?
Germany has no more wars, and did not have any since the Berlin crisis. Fortunately, for East Germany Walter Ulbricht was replaced. Erich Hönecker was respected because he had survived Hitler's concentration camps; being imprisoned since the mid 1930s because he was a socialist and a communist. Their last communist leader was Egon Krenz, who simply ordered open borders and people can go wherever they want.

Japan after causing a series of disasters throughout Asia from 1890s to the 1940s is now faced with an emergent China. Is this America´s problem?

Korea is still a disaster the North Koreans are supported by China because the alternative is a bloody war, but they are getting sick and tired of them. Just like the Americans are getting sick and tired of Israel and its ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.

There is however a problem in terms of trying to destabilize Iran. Legally elected president Mossadegh was assasinated by the CIA in 1954 and the Shah placed on the throne. No doubt the oil companies must have been dreaming of their commisions and their profits at this time.

The Iraq war wasn't about oil unless you think China's buying up most of Iraq's oil counts or was is about terrorism is was about the neocons defending America's pride.
