Well Said!

Reader comment on item: In Iraq, Stay the Course - but Change It

Submitted by Ted McLean (United States), Oct 24, 2006 at 14:37

Whle I knew that the policy of being in the middle of crazy Arab feuds was unwise, I didn't see a practical and sensible solution. As a student of middle east history I also knew that the idea of an Iraqui democracy was a fantasy and very idealistic. So you have a realistic answer - stop trying to be someone elses keeper! If the Iraqis want a free, open and prosperous society, it's been handed to them with the stains of other people's blood. So go for it, or not. We can just make sure that they don't threaten other countries.

Anyway, thank you for your excellent work, I've advised my entire family to subscribe.
