Thoughts for the weekend…
We have a representative republic because our founders were enlightened men… Men who realized that the rule of law, freedom of expression and a right to privacy were logical foundations for government.
Iraq will only have the veneer of democracy – because their rulers still subscribe to the absolute infallibility of revealed truth – through religion.
Iraq's leaders will make the noises they need to appease the west – and the U.S. in particular. But once we leave, things will go down-hill… This will happen no matter when we leave, so we might as well start now and save some American lives.
