Overall, I agree with your assesment. But even though I hold no love for the neocons, and opposed the Iraq war also because it was a sham based on many lies, I have to defend many of the neocons on one matter. Many neocons were trying to push for a much larger force, seeing that the force being deployed was not sufficient. Whether or not this really would have helped is a matter now for speculation. Still, it's obvious that trying to conduct a war on the cheap, with a lesser force, like Rumsfeld and the Bushies tried to do, has backfired big time.
