The massive bombing in Iraq to show Saddam how 'tough' the US, was exhibit 1 of a doomed mission. Bombing empty buildings was Israel's policy to stop terrorism and it worked as well for Israel as it did for the US. If those bombs destroyed Saddam's bases - like the city of Tikrit- the meaning would be crystal clear and the loss of Saddam fanatics - his base support -would make things alot easier in the future. If the US forgets the stupid Shock & Awe nonsense and puts together a real degrading of Iranian-rich targets without regard to the 'civilians' who work at the nuclear site ( p.s. you want the nuclear scientists dead), those at the military airports and those who work pumping oil, the Saudis/Kuwaitis would be so happy seeing the Persian-Shia enemy beaten, they would pump so much oil you wouldn't notice much if any - of a price hike. So much for the energy problem. And in two years or less, Iraq will be back on line.
