3. Ideology trumps reality
It would seem as though Chalabi promised the neocons that, once he was proclaimed king of Iraq, he would open diplomatic and commercial relations with Israel. In the offing, that has been revealed to have been a complete lie. Another thread here posts the news that Iran is "happy" with the new government of Iraq. How ironic that the neocons starry-eyed idealism has caused them to do the bidding of Iran, and not the bidding of their bright flower of freedom in the Middle East, Israel. Neocon thinking is directly analogous to the dialectical reasoning that destroyed Soviet agriculture and society in the old USSR.
