This must also be read and digested an to become part of our native thought process in evaluating the news coming out of Iraq...and elsewhere.
Michael Ledeen on Iraq on National Review Online
This leads inevitably to one of Jerry Bremer's favorite dicta, which is that the United States policy in Iraq must be 'even-handed.' We will not support one party, or group, or faction, against the others. We're not going to take sides. We will manage things in such a way that all Iraqis will have a fair shot at political participation, and then we will let the Iraqis decide what they want.
That doctrine is lethal to freedom in the Middle East, where none of the many active tyrants in the region has the slightest interest in even-handedness. The tyrants want to survive, and if at all possible, to win.
