A Different Perspective on Iraq

Iraq is now creeping away from murderous authoritarianism to face the more normal messes of a creaky Third World nation: corruption, poverty, health problems, miserable public services. And that is vastly preferable to what came before.

His conclusion:  perhaps the sky isn’t falling after all.

If you want to read the Arthur Cherenkoff media analysis Zinsmeister refers to, it’s available here.
