On Iraqi Democracy

Yeah, it's just another form of repression over there; one group lording over another and ergo we have what we currently have. Democracy is hard enough when the people like each other and the fact that the neocons thought that they could superimpose our form of government (absent the institutions of a free press, independent judiciary, etc.) on a population that's been at each other's jugulars for 13 centuries is right up there with Woodrow Wilson's "making the world safe for democracy" and maybe worse.

It's also hard for generations that have grown up with the evils socialism, instilled vicious antisemitism, and a culture of violence and brutality to quickly switch to something better.

No, it's not Truth 101. It's a troll, probably a version of Steve, who is going around crapping on several blogs.

I'd say "Great minds think alike", but in this case the only mind was Truth's.
