Rumsfeld admits it: "We don't have an exit strategy..." but then claims "we have a victory strategy."
And what is that? "To help the Iraqi Forces develop the skills and the capacity to provide their own security.'' In other words, we need trained goons to protect our US bases and keep the oil flowing to US tankers.
You know, Saddam had plenty of trained goons. How much has this war cost now? Wouldn't it have been easier to just pay off Saddam and use his goons? I'm sure that for a few hundred billion dollars Saddam could have persuaded to do just about anything...
