Consequences of the War against Iraq

Here's an assessment from "Al Jazeerah" online at  :

"The US, the world's super power, defeats the Third 
World country of Iraq after pounding it for 12 years 
through sanctions.  Casualties: less than 100 soldiers for 
US and about 1.5 million Iraqis. Consequences: Total 
Israeli hegemony over the Middle East, the oil wells are 
secure, the military industry will be thriving for decades, 
and the stock markets are ready to take off."

Are there aspects of the above assessment that you 
disagree with?  Are there other important consequences 
not mentioned above?

In solidarity, Jerry
