An Upbeat Assessment of Iraq's Dictator-Free, Energy-Driven Future
Followers of mainstream news will report hearing nothing good from Iraq lately. Just the usual smattering of terrorist bombs in Baghdad and beyond, and accounts of slow-moving government incompetence.
But guess what? If you're willing to follow THIS LINK to Thomas Barnett's recent post, you'll get an entirely different picture. One in which it's possible we'll look back at the invasion and all its subsequent pain and suffering and conclude - wow, it was really worth it.
Only time will tell, of course. Here's one more picture though, because our guys are so great, and because the good will they generate from the pure of heart (i.e., kids) is so visible for everyone to see here at home, and inside and outside the Middle East.
