    they serve as the establishment's mouthpiece.

    The most important primary objectives were achieved.

    1. Access to Iraq's oil for the British and American oil companies. Saddam had not allowed them in.

    2. Iraq broken as a functioning state and therefore could not represent a potential threat to Israel.

    WMD's and a likely connection to 9/11 terrorism were the best pretexts they could come up with to sell to a gullible public looking for revenge.

    I wonder if they or their masters have any regrets for the "collateral damage" they caused.
