The Democracy Option (washingtonpost.com)

The Democracy Option (washingtonpost.com)

The Washington Post is apparently uncomfortable with agreeing too whole-heartedly with critics of the Bush administration. Despite acknowledging that the administration is up shit creek without a paddle, it immediately criticizes phantom 'realists' for offering illusory paths from Iraq. Obliquely referring, perhaps, to Peter Galbraith's New York Review article it rejects both a partitioning of Iraq, in the hopes of elections and some form of democracy.

Democracy in Iraq is obviously the ideal, and could we fiat it, we would. Absent omnipotence, though, we need to move beyond hopes. If the Post really thinks elections are the only way to achieve victory, it must brace itself for the ascendance of an anti-American, pro-Iranian regime.
