#1 Pressure for reform has also mounted from abroad following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and especially after the U.S.-led war in Iraq that ousted Saddam Hussein.
Sounds like its working to me!

Absolutely. The strategy is having its effects and will have even more as people from the region get a chance to check out what's happening, for real, in Iraq. The hear about the elections, they want them too. No one who has any choice at all wants dictators-for-life.

This is why a few casualties every couple of days in Iraq is meaningless. What matters is the strategy and that means pressuring Egypt, Syrian, Saudi Arabia, Iran, et al. to get with the program.

#2 We hear an awfully lot from the Dem "presidential candidates" about how Iraq is a 'failure', and Dubya's "domino" theory is the dumbest thing since the invention of dirt. Then a few days later, we see things like this. Wonder how much crow it's gonna take before these idiotarians in the "opposition party" and the media begin to get tired of the menu, and actually learn what's going on.

#3 In my book, Egypt should be badgered into democratic reform and eventual freedom at a safe pace. We ought to have some influence through our cash flow; if we don't lets send the cash in a more productive direction.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
