Iraq, what do we do after we go in?

Alexander Cockburn has an article on what is to be done in Iraq after the invasion, and how a revealing memo is showing that there is little thought of how to get from Saddam-land to the democratic and moderate Arab bedrock state that Mark Steyn and others assure us we'll get a couple of days after invading the place. The paper that Cockburn refers to, "Planning for a Self-Inflicted Wound: US Policy to Shape a Post-Saddam Iraq" is here, although in PDF format.

Another center right perspective on Iraq is in the Spectator, and instead of being called a self inflicted wound its called a war for fools and cowards. Please, say what you mean and don't hold back.
