“As [neo-conservatives Robert] Kagan and [William] Kristol argued [in a Weekly Standard article on January 21, 2002], ‘a devastating knockout blow against Saddam Hussein, followed by an American-sponsored effort to rebuild Iraq and put it on a path toward democratic governance would have a seismic impact on the Arab world–for the better. …Once Iraq and Turkey–two of the most important Middle Eastern powers–are both in the pro-Western camp, there is reasonable chance that smaller powers might decide to jump on the bandwagon.’ ”
