Trust me, I am not a "Hanoi Jane Fonda" type:
1. First of all, when our Founding Fathers were setting things up, if they wanted democracy in the Middle East, it would already be there.
2. Secondly, there are a number of "sympathsizers" around. These gents make it hard to properly train the Iraq Police force in defending their country when we eventually leave.
3. Last, but not least, third - Iraq is lost without a dictator "kikken them in the butt". They don't know how to make a decision for themselves (cause ole Saddam wouldn't let them for a number of years). So, as a
result of this dependency, they don't know how to run properly run a country (and the constant childish bickering of the Kurds, Shites, & Sunni's doesn't help).
