Old Blog Import

This article has an interesting discussion about half-way through regarding how the Richard Perle, a top military advisor, thinks about the possibility of a war on Iraq:

… here was a top Pentagon adviser, a comrade of the get-Saddam ideologues of the Defense Department, asserting the United States could de-Saddamize Iraq with a relatively small force and without asking any other nation for assistance. Was anyone else at the Pentagon on this same page? Might Perle be reflecting proposals already drawn up there?”
