Democracy for us

Daniel Pipes, The National Interest, Winter 2005/2006:

"For Iraq, this tempered approach implies lowering expectations, for building democracy will likely require decades, especially because Iraqis do not accept American guidance. And so, as I have argued since early 2003, we should have accepted a democratically minded strongman. The Iraqi population has unquestionably benefited from the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, but remaking Iraq in the American image is the wrong standard by which to judge the coalition venture there. From the U.S. point of view, the immediate goal in Iraq is a regime that does not endanger America. Protecting themselves, not creating a better Iraq, is why taxpayers spend and soldiers fight."

Just in case anybody is unclear what kind of "democracy" is favoured by the likes of Pipes.

You know it's a shame how some boys despite good upbringing and loving parents can go bad. Here's Daniel servicing 4 penises at the same time and for what? Does he need the money? Is it a self destruct thing? Maybe he loves the humiliation?

He gets it from his father, a raving conservative loon. Don't worry, history always judges such figures with contempt.
