    Actually don't think there will be a need for any. They were one of the Axis of Evil mentioned in 2002 SOU address. Iraq is situated between Iran and Israel. It borders SA, from which we need the oil. (SA is all about OIL). By far and away, Iraq was the easiest to bring down and perhaps set 'right.'

    Iraq may have been the easiest and it may have been set 'right' as you say, but let us think about the publics opinion before and after the iraq invasion.....now, lets think about the political fallout that would happen if it became irrefutable that Iran had supported 9/11 whereas the evidence about Iraq is somewhat skeptical.

    Just my take, but in any circumstances I think the people do actually get what is facing them now. There are a core, that no matter what, wish us to lose-because we have it 'coming.' (ala MM).

    I guess I'm not as cynical about the actually ability of the citizenry to understand, once it's explained.
