I can't tell if this article is scarier or funnier. In any event, the Bush people are in a pickle: If they meddle with Iraq's "democracy," there goes their whole (current) justification for the invasion. But on the other hand, if they sit back and watch the country fall apart, there goes their whole (current) justification for the invasion. (HINT: By equating "peace" with "democratic elections," they painted themselves into a corner.) Here's a quote that made me laugh out loud like Herman Munster:
"It's true the country has been accustomed to dealing with problems through violence, through coercion and through oppression," [Rice] said. "Now they have to do it through politics."
