Without Sin

New Republic;8/11/2003-8/18/2003, Vol. 229 Issue 6, p12
Do the critics of United States-and United Kingdom-sponsored regime change in Baghdad, Iraq, actually believe Iraq would have come to democracy on its own? The United States has not yet found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. But the U.S. has found at least 62 mass graves, filled with decayed corpses, thousands of them mowed down on the spot and buried, victims of former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein's relentless war against the majority Shia. Were the United Nations running Iraq (or even helping run it) and the French, Russians, and Egyptians playing major roles, post-Hussein Iraq would likely be less orderly and less decent. The progress that has been made in the Middle East peace process is attributable to three things: Israel's resilience in its long struggle with terror, widespread Palestinian dismay with their situation after nearly three years of self-destructive intifada, and the United States' willingness to go it almost alone in Iraq.
