Iraq 'not really our problem' - Daniel Pipes

From an interview with Mark Colvin at abc.net.au, Daniel Pipes gives an interesting look into the the neo-con mind and its hypocritical jumbled up logic. Remind us again, what 'noble cause'?

DANIEL PIPES: I mean, it's a godawful thing, and I very much hope it doesn't take place, but should there be a civil war in Iraq, it doesn't very much affect those of us who don't live in Iraq. It's not really our problem.

MARK COLVIN: That sounds a bit reminiscent of Chamberlain at Munich, saying that Czechoslovakia was a country far away of which we know little.

DANIEL PIPES: Well, some countries far away are important to us, and… but not every country far away is important to us.

Huge insult to peoples intelligence to say something so ridiculously and patently false like that.

He's pretty transparent. Most of those who planned the war are his buddies (Perle, Feith, Wolfowitz and other hard core Likudniks). He's hoping against hope that an Iraqi civil war and its consequences wont rebound on U.S. interests so severly that attention may turn on those who started it and by default a certain foreign govt they're very close to.

If it doesn't much affect those of us who live in Iraq, what does that say about President Bush's claim that we had to invade Iraq to save America?

Have these neo-cons no shame at all?
