Patrick Cockburn

They have done it again. The US, Britain and regional allies led by Saudi Arabia have come together to intervene in another country with calamitous results. Instead of achieving their aims, they have produced chaos, ruining the lives of millions of people and creating ideal conditions for salafi-jihadi movements like al-Qaeda and Islamic State.

It a simple matter of implementing strategies to obtain a desired outcome.

This was ever their intent. Just as it was In Libya , Iraq and Syria. These are not "mistakes"

Mr Cockburn is still attempting to advance the falsehood that these outcomes not forseen or desired. Mr Cockburn should try and understand nobody is THAT stupid, even our Political leaders.

pretty much what I was going to say - I think Cockburn is being clever here as an outright declaration that the chaos IS part of the plan would really piss people off and so it is vaguely implied....chaos = war and for the military and industries and the people at the top associated with those industries it means more money!
