the plan?

Further evidence, if you needed it, that the US didn't have a realistic plan when it invaded Iraq is that Iraq is now #2 on a list you don't want to be on -- a "Failed State Index." Only Sudan was found worse in a survey by Fund for Peace and Foreign Policy magazine.

Now, Tony Blair and the British military apparently knew we didn't have a plan for Iraq, apart from destroying its military resistance and waiting for people to throw petals at the invading tanks. I guess the question is, what is dumber -- invading Iraq without a plan (the Cheney/Bush/ Rumsfeld/Rice model). Or agreeing to go along with an invasion of Iraq despite knowing the ringleader has no plan (the Tony Blair model)?
