One way or another both the US military and the CIA are going to be staying and controlling Iraq. Oh yes, U.S. oil companies and multinations -- let's not forget them!

There's been nothing like it since the days of the Vietnam war. And guess what. The 3000+ operatives will be headquartered in Baghdad; and many are already in place.
