The Return of the Death Squads - by John Pilger Pilger argues that the incitement of civil war and the breakup of Iraq is original war aim of the US. Many people will find this hard to accept, but when one considers the hideous reality of the Vietnam 'Phoenix Program' or the Central American 'Death Squad Democracies' it is more than possible.

The breakup of Iraq gains in inevitability every day, but I am not convinced this was the 'original war aim'. A revised war aim, maybe.
