Pat Buchanan says
that the Bushies have ended the stability problem in the Middle East:
"For 60 years, my country, the United States, pursued stability at the expense of democracy in … the Middle East, and we achieved neither. Now, we are taking a different course. We are supporting the democratic aspirations of all the people."
So Condi Rice hubristically declared in Cairo in 2005.
Since then, those elections that Rice demanded have advanced toward or into power the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Hamas in Palestine, Hezbollah in Lebanon, the radical Shia in Iraq, and Ahmadinejad in Iran.
But at least Bush and Rice have solved the stability problem.
