The author argues that liberals in the U.S. must be reminded that under the leadership of U.S. President George W. Bush, Iraq would become an outpost of U.S. power projection throughout the Middle East. He contends that the war in Iraq is a military commitment in search of a rationale. He is convinced that the stable flow of oil, preventing regional crises and arresting the spread of al-Qaeda are the real interests of the U.S. in Iraq.
