Wolfowitz Confesses the Lies

The US Administration has probably arrived at an opinion that it's time to open up the secret of the Iraqi war reasons

US Deputy Secretary of Defence Paul Wolfowitz, one of the firmest advocates of decisive military action opened up his heart. Wolfowitz said in an interview with the magazine Vanity Fair that weapons of mass destruction allegedly held by the Iraqi regime were not the main reason why the war in Iraq had started. He said that the USA had chosen Iraq's alleged stocks of chemical and biological weapons to justify going to war for bureaucratic reasons. In the words of Wolfowitz, search and liquidation of weapons of mass destruction allegedly held by Iraq "became the main argument for going to war with Iraq because all arms of the bureaucracy could agree on this argument."

The main reason of war in Iraq, Wolfowitz says, was that the USA wanted to overthrow Saddam Hussein. Another reason for going to war with Iraq, a secondary one but not less important in this case, was that the USA could withdraw the troops from Saudi Arabia when the war in Iraq is over. At that, US's influence in the Middle East wouldn't suffer at all. Paul Wolfowitz didn't specify where the US troops would be removed then; he only mentioned that the troops "would become a permanent irritant to al-Qaeda terrorists." It has been reported long ago already that Americans planned to set up military bases on the Iraqi territory. Certainly, the Pentagon refuted the information, but it sounded unconvincing at that.
