For one thing, its a fascinating study of how the regime fell prey to its own distorted world view.
Saddam, as a true occidentalist, presumed that the rich and casualty-averse Americans would never dare mount a full-scale ground invasion; expected that the protests of international opinion would stop them even if they did; that his biggest danger was not external, but an internal coup; ignored his generals' advice that a blooder urban defence be conducted in order to inflict more losses on the enemy; and took at face value the optimistic reports from his own subordinates about the progress of the war, in a system when to be a bearer of bad news was bad for your health.

Amazing parallels with the bubble in which Bush has conducted the war, from ignoring his general's advice about how many troops it would take to conduct it to how much money would be spent on it, and where it would come from. The two blind leaders remind me of that Magritte painting showing two lovers, with sacks over their heads, kissing. I guess this is what happens when power systematically tunes out feedback.Post a Comment
