William Kristol has pointed out that democracy must be won over by a political leader. Who is this in Iraq? Sadr obviously isn't it. He has 1% of the support. Where are the Lech Walensa's, the Juan Carlos', the Vaclav Havel's? It is perverse to doubt the values of democarcy. We've seen dictatorships fall in unlikely places such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Chile, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Taiwan, and South Korea. People claim utopians are the most dangerous in the world. Is it too utopian to believe democracy will flourish in Baghdad? How utopian is it to believe the Communist Party in China will fall after a far more stabile communist situation fell in the Soviet Union? We've put pressure on Poland, South Africa, the Philippines, Peru, El Salvador, Honduras, and Bolivia for democracy. We've fought on behalf of Muslims in Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, and Serbia. We've seen a free Poland be an example to Eastern Europe and a free Spain be an example to Latin America. We've seen Germany and Italy become great democracies. And we've seen Japan, a nation we twice nuked, turn into a captialist power. All of these countries are better off. Is Sistani our man in Iraq? Can the American public stomach these historic times?
