US needed 'Iraqi De Gaulle' for invasion: Perle - Yahoo! News:
Wed Dec 13, 10:14 AM ET

BERLIN (AFP) - Top US neoconservative Richard Perle, a key former architect of US
President George W. Bush's foreign policy, has admitted there were mistakes in the execution of the
Iraq war, saying the invasion had needed "an Iraqi De Gaulle."

Perle, who was an advisor to former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, told German weekly broadsheet Die Zeit in an issue to be published Thursday that a string of tactical errors had resulted in the chaos reigning in Iraq today.

"The idea was good, the execution was bad," he was quoted as saying in an advance German transcript of the interview.

"We should have agreed on a post-war Iraqi leadership" but were thwarted by opposition at the US State Department and the
Central Intelligence Agency, Perle said.

"We should have marched into Baghdad with an Iraqi De Gaulle," he said.

General Charles de Gaulle led the French resistance against the Nazi German occupation during World War II and returned from British exile to a hero's welcome in Paris in 1944, assuming the presidency of the provisional government.

Perle blasted the findings released last week by the bipartisan Iraq Survey Group mapping a way forward in the strife-raged country.

"I have never seen such a foolish report," he said.

He said proposals such as opening talks with Iraq's neighbors
Iran and
Syria and planning the withdrawal of US troops were flat wrong.

"Syria and Iran have done everything they can to destabilize Iraq and they do not have the slightest interest in another strategy. A report that begins with false premises ends in nothing," Perle said, adding that he did not expect Bush to follow the recommendations.

"I think he will change the strategy: more US troops in Iraqi units, more Iraqis in American (units). That could improve the impact of both units. In any case that would be easier than forging a national army from enemy ethnic groups," he said.

Perle, one of the most outspoken advocates of toppling Iraqi leader
Saddam Hussein, publicly broke with the government over the invasion before key midterm elections in November, along with several other high-profile "neocons."

What this evil American fool, the zionist pig called Perle who made his money selling weapons and peddling his political contacts is too evil and arrogant to understand is that DeGaulle was a patriot who fought to free his country. He would never have been part of such an invasion. The Iraqi DeGaulles are fighting - and killing, the American invaders just as the French DeGaulle fought and killed the German ones in World War II
