"We need to have a post on the Disney movie for discussion purposes.
The Disney movie, in my opinion, is very, very big news.
It strongly implies, to my mind, that this particular administration intends to keep a very large contingent of troops in Iraq forever_____________. In fact, as a kind of tripwire, like our troops in South Korea, against an attack from just about any Arab nation.
Now, that’s obviously a little fuzzy. But this movie is not just a mosquito buzzing at the edges of the national debate. It’s at the center." Arbogast
I have removed the words "to protect Israel" because I think the argument is unsupported that this is true.
On the other hand, I do think that a mistaken belief that revolutionary change in the ME would protect Israel figured prominently among the motives of the Bush Administration in invading Iraq.
