The major differences are:
- Iraq is not an extension of the existing United States into which land-hungry settlers can pour.
- He can't wipe out or swamp the natives. The billion-dollar embassy will be surrounded by active enemies forever.
- This time it's all about oil, global power, and the personal enrichment of Bush, his family, his inner circle, and his power base - even if it impoverishes the average American.
Mr. Bush, globally ignorant, builds his billion-dollar Fort Embassy in the middle of the country with all the oil. What he fails to take into account is that, if the country break into three, the US will be sitting in the only bit without oil.
But so what? That will be the next Administration's problem.
Bush has had his fun, accomplished his mission, benefited his friends, and set himself up financially for life.
By the way, that's proof that Jesus loves him.
