The Iraqi Gravy Train

Well it was bound to happen. Edward Luttwak reports that not only is democracy a bad idea for Iraq, but that the place is becoming a resentful welfare case and Western troops really hate it.

Of course the idea that democracy will not work wherever it's imposed (and free markets cannot be imposed, otherwise they're not free markets) is heresy on the British right at the moment. Somehow I don't think those minds are going to remain closed.
