I believe one un-spoken agenda for Iraq is that it become an armed camp for the US in the heart of the Middle East. Note the location, in direct pxoximity to Iran, Afganistan, Syria, Pakistan, etc. Given the nature of the pan-Islamist Jihad movement, it makes perfect sense that the US have a rapid-response base in the heart of the Middle East. Saudi Arabia was becoming untenable and no other options present themselves for access by sea. The Islamist Jihad will be with us for some time. The US is the only functioning super power/police force. Iraq is a likely place to build a police station.
