Our Wilsonian Iraq policy
: H.W. Greenway on the perils of occupying Iraq
and insisting on democracy there when/if/after we invade. Excellent points. I think I’m not alone in my frustrations with the zigzagging Bush administration policies. They’ve blocked and/or dragged their feet on ‘nation building’ in Afghanistan but are now talking about, well, nation building in post-war Iraq. The contradictions are glaring. I definitely tilt in favor of the ‘nation building’ option in both nations, but I like to think I’m realistic about their outcomes. Greenway is injecting some much needed realism into the debate.
