"We're going to pacify Iraq and bring it under our control because Saudi Arabia's ruling family is in deep shit and we'll be lucky if they last two more years. We're trying to pretend that the place isn't crawling with terrorists already but soon there won't be any stopping them. Therefore our only sizeable, stable, and friendly source of oil is about to become a thing of the past; and we can't stabilize it militarily because that's where the two holiest cities of Islam are and it'd be WWIII if we tried. Only Iraq has the potential to make up the difference. Right or not, just or not, their ass is ours. It helps that Saddam is an asshole, but frankly at this point we'd do him if he were Mother Theresa."
