The Bayesian logic dictates that if the whole establishment works for a nincompoop to bring him to power that would mean that he was to be put there with a certain goal in mind and that goal he was destined fulfill no matter what the cost. As we will see further on that goal was the attack on Iraq and Afghanistan. That was not the only goal but the main one, the one that defined the whole set of the tragic events that followed.
Greg Palast in his book “ The Best Democracy Money Can Buy’ tells a lot about the lucrative contacts between the Clintonians and GOP. Justin Raimondo of www.antiwar.com calls them all ‘a war party’. It would be reasonable to to assume that the war party wants war at all costs and would care less for the country. The theory holds.
The period between January and September 2001 was a troubling period for the folks in charge of GW. He demonstrated a remarkable lack of any reason, laziness, illiteracy and stupidity. He became notorious for his long vacations and for his Bible – related rants. He became a laughing- stock of the world. Although his team was ready to go, they did nothing- the President was not inclined to function in any presidential capacity. Meanwhile the money-masters were waiting and the clock was ticking- they needed the US to attack Iraq. That, I think, triggered the exercising of the PLAN.
I can only speculate about who gave all that money but so far the two forces come to mind: Saudi Arabia and Jewish establishment in the USA. In both cases the interests of the parties involved had nothing to do with, say, Sunnis or ordinary Jews, Neither party represents anyone but themselves: the Saudi Royal family wanted Saddam out because he was a socialist. He represented a threat to the Islamic rule; his system of governance threatened the stability of the Arabic workforce in the region. In fact the key moment was Kuwait. If Saddam had burned it to the ground instead of retreating he would have been a ruler ‘de facto’ and there was a chance for him to survive. When he retreated he signed his death warrant because the Saudis just decided that it would be cheaper for them to finance Bush.
The Jewish establishment in the USA has some kind of a paranoid interest in the usage of the US politics for their own benefit. Rabbi Lerner from Tikkun mentioned that many times. Those individuals are not even friends of Israel. They are the allies of the idea of Israel being there as some kind of a black hole to where they could send other Jews if necessary. They want to be the ‘Kings of the Jews’. The do have a certain connection with the powerful circles in Israel proper, primarily those who share their views about Israel’s role in the Middle East as the ‘Jewish Paradise with nuclear bombs.’ Saddam Hussein and his activities presented a threat to that idea because in their minds he was unpredictable. Besides, it appealed to them that the whole might of the US would be used for their rather minuscule purposes. Those people are extremely rich, ruthless but also immature, stupid and mean. They considered that they had a chance to go for a big one. The wobbling, lazy bastard who started vacationing instead of working hard for their goals was not what they anticipated. Bush needed a push at his butt. The mechanism for the push was already established and ready to go.
