ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Freedom Breaking Out All Over

H/T Glenn

Gateway Pundit has posted news about protests taking place throughout the Middle East, but specifically about those in Iran, where students are calling for a referendum on the nature of their government (instead of the traditional election which only allows it to continue in its current form).

As I've mentioned previously (here and to some extent here) George W. Bush is such an idiot for thinking that this will work. I mean, what we need is stability in the region - not a bunch of yahoos trying to instill human rights, equality, and freedom. I mean, c'mon. What this region needs is a strongman like Saddam Hussein... someone we can trust. We all KNOW that those in the Middle East are incapable of being able to govern themselves, right?

**sarcasm off**
10 or 20 years from now, we'll look back on this period in a way that is similar to our views on the 1980s, when the US re-engaged in rolling back the Soviet empire. Yes, there were problems and misteps, but can anyone argue that our victory was the best thing that could've happened to the world. (And when I say anyone, I don't mean Ward Churchill, Cynthia McKinney, etc, etc). Will Bush get his due? Not likely... The Left will once again revise history to make it seem like they were with us all along. Unfortunately for them, there are a lot of people paying attention and tracking their nutty thoughts (such as yours truly).
