The reason “thousands of civilians” in Baghdad were killed was purely for retribution for the attack on the World Trade Center. It didn't make any difference to Bush who died, just so long as they were “Arabs” and as you will note, the number of Iraqis killed were roughly the same number as killed in the Trade Center. That is no coincidence; the Iraqi oil could have been taken with few civilian deaths. These deaths serve to reelect Mr. Bush and keep Mr. Wolfowitz in business. It is as simple as that.
