There’s a really interesting piece on Washington Monthly’s website by Wes Clark. It’s a bit long and nuanced, but really good reading for anybody interested in Iraq and our strategy there. If that’s you, then make the 20 minutes to read and digest it sometime.

More than anything else, we should keep in mind the primary lesson of the fall of the Soviet Union: Democracy can come to a place only when its people rise up and demand it.
