Well, I "signed on" ....but only to wave a flag from the curb...
Sullivan is slightly disturbed that the Bush Administration isn't any more a fan of democracy in Iraq, then they are at home.
But the administration needs to be put on notice by its supporters as well as its opponents. Many of us signed onto this war not merely to protect the West from terrorists with weapons of mass destruction, but as an attempt to grasp the nettle of Arab autocracy. If we make no effort to foster democratic institutions, the rule of law and representative government in Iraq, then we will lose the peace as surely as we will have won the Iraq war. And losing that peace means losing the wider war on terror as well.
Looks like Andy is starting to realize that he was promoted from "idiot" to "useful idiot" without his knowledge.
