The war games, labeled “Desert Crossing”, involved a cross section of military, diplomatic, and intelligence officials. Amongst some of the reports findings were:
"A change in regimes does not guarantee stability…" "…A number of factors including aggressive neighbors, fragmentation along religious and/or ethnic lines, and chaos created by rival forces bidding for power could adversely affect regional stability."
"Even when civil order is restored and borders are secured, the replacement regime could be problematic - especially if perceived as weak, a puppet, or out-of-step with prevailing regional governments."
"Also, some participants believe that no Arab government will welcome the kind of lengthy U.S. presence that would be required to install and sustain a democratic government."
Hey Mr. Rumsnamara! I’ll bet you could have gotten this same information just by walking down the hall a few steps. Probably wouldn’t even have had to get a Freedom of Information Act request or anything. Oh wait! That’s right; you got your information from Perle and Wolfowitz. And how’s that workin out for ya?
