Don't confuse results with aims. Also, never understimate incompetance. Although the administration of GWB truly reached new heights of incompetance....

The *aim* was to establish US supremacy in the region. WMD, democracy etc was a fig leaf. The *result* was to diminish US stature worldwide, reduce US influence in the region and increase Iranian influence in the region.

We don't have an "empire"...

Don't be ridiculous. The US has military bases in most of the civilised world and a lot of the less civilised world. The US feels free to intervene (using military and other means) throughout central and south America whenever they don't like the results of an election.

The US is probably the only power in the world that you could say has an empire.
