It depends on what news you believe
Saddam has terrorist training camps. Point of departure # 1. If you don't believe this, read no further.
Whatever Al Quaeda's feelings of Saddam, they are using his training camps for their own men. Point of departure # 2. If you don't believe this possible, read no further.
George is going into Iraq to stop Al Quaeda using his terrorist camps. Point of departure # 3. If you don't believe this, read no further.
After Iraq, George's force will be redevoted elsewhere. SE Asia is a possibility, but Africa seems more likely. This is my personal opinion.
Individual liberties will continue to be taken away in North America. More personal opinion.
