The search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq is one of the greatest nonevents of the early 21st century, right up there with the failure of the world’s computers to crash at the end of the last millennium. That Y2K scare at least brought us an updated Internet. Fear of the nonexistent W.M.D. brought us a war.

The US government, and especially its military, did not fear WMDs in Iraq, because the WMDs belonged to them and their allies and puppets. They were not willing to lose 50K or more troops in the first week of major combat, and they know they deserved to lose far more than that, and even more of their own civilians back home.

The fear that made a difference was in the fraction of the US public that believed the lies and supported the war.
