So against my better judgement, I spent some of my Sunday morning watching the news programs. Some Senator dude from New York State rolled out an interesting variation on the Iraqi Democracy canard: that it was Saddam Hussein whom created the greatest stability problem in the Middle East.
That is a very different thing than what the Administration has said up until now. The Administration’s position has always been that an Iraqi democracy would help stabilize the region, which is a much different thing than saying that Saddam *contributed* do the instability already present.
I’m just writing a quick post to point out that this is assinine. If you wanted to stabilize the region, the best bet would have been ~ and it still continues to be a good choice, not that anyone in the Administration appears to be interested ~ solving the Isreali-Palastinian problem.
