Honestly, what did people expect?
I hardly qualify as an Expert in any field, but I could've told you that Democracy is not what Iraq needs or what it will get.
Why? Because I've read a little history. At least the British installed a monarchy.
Like it or not, Iraq needed a strong dictator like Hussein to hold the country together - now that he is gone you better either break the country up into a confederation (which would probably be picked apart by neighbors), or find another, slightly nicer strongman to replace him.
It's not that the Neoconservatives are so bad - they are just so naive. Usually that's a charge leveled at Liberals.
We truly live in an Ironic age.
For it is the yearning after comparisons and metaphors for each new object and landscape that sanctifies consciousness
