Why not state your case instead of your childish attacks towards others?

Lay it out...what "really" happened?

I don't intend to hurt your feelings here, but you might benefit from learning how the US military operates.
Yes, I understand the military has a job to do. I didn't understand that private industry was telling them how to do their job. Should Microsoft be in on potential plans to invade Japan? The article is primarily concerned with the oil industry and appropriation of natural resources, not the military. This is a very different scenario than the examples you've cited.

I don't know about you, but I would prefer that oil companies adhere to rather than generate U.S. policy.
Invade Japan/consult Microsoft is an analogy searching for a point.

If we wished to invade the tomato capital of the world and wish to minimize damage to the tomoto production infrastructure, whom would we consult for advice?

1. Oil companies
2. Greepeace
3. MrTikket
4. Heinz Ketchup

Iraq has been on the neocons radar screen for well over a decade if you care to read up on it.
No shit, Sherlock.

The analogy points toward intent, and in the mostly black and white world of right and wrong, intent is no small player.

Yes, the analogy DOES point toward intent. Comparing invasion plans in Iraq to those prepared against countries that might actually pose a threat to the United States is absurd. Clearly, if such an invasion were planned on the opinions of oil companies, then the intent of that invasion is clear. All the bullshit reasons given--before and after the fact--now are revealed for the smoke screen they are. It wasn't WMD, it wasn't Iraqi freedom, it wasn't the need to establish a democracy (by force) in a particularly inhospitable part of the world--it was oil, oil, and more oil. Over 1,500 Americans and untold thousands of Iraqis have died for oil; Saddam Hussein's many atrocities are a prop for the war, just as is the 9/11 event. They have been used, it appears, to justify a blatant oil grab.
