The only important question is; how long will we be fooled into thinking those who engineer these kinds of wars are simpletons who have our best interests at heart? They tricked us into Vietnam with the Gulf of Tonkin scam and they did it again in Iraq with the WMD scam.Â
Step 1; Plant the seeds for the creation and development of a puppet global enemy. The Bush Sr. team financed and supplied both bin Laden and Saddam in the 1980s. The House of Saud helped with step 1.
Step 2; make the puppet enemies angry.The Bush Sr. team set up military bases on Saudi holy land after giving Saddam the green light to invade Kuwait. The House of Saud helped with step 2.
Step 3; allow the puppet enemy to attack. 9/11 was allowed to happen.The House of Saud helped with step 3.
Step 4; make sure the puppet enemy has enough resources to keep up a good fight.That's where the billions of dollars flowing from Afghan opium comes into the game. Afghan opium pays for the IED'S that kill and wound our marines and soldiers yet USAGOV does not aerial spray (for eradication) the wide open Afghan opium fields like we do the Columbian coca fields.
Step 5; profiteer off the resulting conflict financially (high oil prices and corrupt defence contracts)and use the war to meet neo-con expansionist goals (permanent military bases throughout the middle east). The House of Saud is participating in step 5.
CIA says Afghan Opium Trafficking pays for al-Queda's world-wide terror attacks and also pays for the IED's that kill and cripple our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan:

Former CIA Director George Tenat;
"there is ample evidence that Islamic extremists such as Usama bin Ladin use profits from the drug trade to support their terror campaign."
"It seems clear to me heroin is the No. 1 financial asset of Osama bin Laden," Representative Mark Steven Kirk, Illinois
Republican, told The Washington Times almost 3 years ago when he came back from a fact-finding mission in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Bin Laden is reaping $24 million alone from one narcotics network in Kandahar, Afghanistan, according to Mr. Kirk's investigation. "The most important thing here is to change the language to not describe Osama bin Laden anymore as a terrorist, but to more accurately describe him as a narco-terrorist," said Representative Kirk.
