I must have missed the failure of the US in Lebanon and Iraq. When did that happen? Seems to me both countries have recently had pretty fair elections and sent the extremists packing...

Really? I guess the fundamentalists from the United Iraqi Alliance (or whatever its name was) did not get a majority of the seats. I guess they did not put "No law shall contradict Islamic principles" in the constitution. (Imagine if the First Amendment said: "No law shall contradict Christian principles.") I guess a Hezbollah endorsement did not mean a sure-winner in Lebanon. Gotta love these Muslims, they love freedom and hate extremism.

The vote in Palestine was interesting too. They voted in Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Isn't democracy without morality wonderful?
