but before we get to that

…let’s look at some of the predictions the Monterey Institute made five years ago, for what they called even then this “Imprudent and Unnecessary War”:

  • Al-Qa’ida conducts terrorist attacks to coincide with war
  • U.S. viewed as causing high casualties among Iraqi civilians
  • Inadequate U.S. and international support for reconstruction of Iraq
  • U.S. must occupy Iraq for years to maintain stable and pro-U.S. regime
  • North Korea exploits U.S. and UNSC focus on Iraq to build nuclear arsenal
  • Enduring outrage among Arab and Muslim populations broadens social base for terrorism against Americans
  • High U.S. military casualties in urban fighting

Seven for seven. Whee.
