ABSTRACT
The article presents the predictions from prominent thinkers in 2003 of how the Iraq War, 2003 would go, and what some of them say now. Former Chairman of the Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee Richard Perle said, I believe, and I think there is a lot of evidence to suggest, that most Iraqis will regard us as liberators, and it will not take anything like that number of troops several hundred thousand to maintain peace and order in Iraq.
