M. Bush et le chaos
If the situation weren't so tragic, one might note with irony that neoconservatives seem to have successfully brought to pass phase one of their plan: Chaos.

LES NÉOCONSERVATEURS américains voulaient du changement au Proche-Orient, par la force au besoin. Dans le désarroi des lendemains des attentats du 11 septembre 2001, ils ont imposé cette idée-là au président George W. Bush. C'est du statu quo qu'était venu le malheur de ces régimes autoritaires, parfois alliés des Etats-Unis, dont la brutalité et l'incompétence ont nourri l'islamisme radical. Faute de savoir favoriser des évolutions intérieures, éminemment souhaitables mais forcément plus lentes, il fallait un électrochoc. Il fallait donner un coup de pied salutaire, ne pas avoir peur d'une phase de déstabilisation temporaire, indispensable étape avant la recomposition d'un ordre proche-oriental plus satisfaisant pour tout le monde. En économie, on parlerait d'un processus de destruction-création.

Ce coup de pied dans l'ordre ancien, ce fut la guerre en Irak. Et, si la situation n'était si tragique, on aurait volontiers envie d'ironiser en observant que les néoconservateurs semblent en passe d'accomplir avec succès la première phase de leur plan : le chaos.

3. Heres the Google translation
The American NÉOCONSERVATEURS wanted change in the Middle East, by the force with the need. In the distress of the shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001, they imposed this idea to the president George W Bush. It is status quo which misfortune had come from these authoritative modes, sometimes combined of the United States, whose brutality and incompetence nourished radical Islamism. Fault of knowing to support interior evolutions, eminently desirable but inevitably slower, an electric shock was needed.

It was necessary to give a salutary kick, not to be afraid of a temporary phase of destabilization, essential stage before the recombining of a more satisfactory close relation-Eastern order for everyone. In economy, one would speak about a process of destruction-creation. This kick in the old order, it was the war in Iraq. And, if the situation were not so tragic, one would want readily to be ironical by observing that the néoconservateurs seem on the way to achieve successfully the first phase of their plan: chaos.
