Liberal Cliche: Everything Has A Sinister Motivation

From Skip March:

I am listening to Tom Oliphant of the Boston Globe comment on Condoleeza Rice's trip to Iraq. He maintains that Secretary Rice is there because things are spinning out of control politically with sectarian division. He also suggests a sinister connection to Ahmad Chalabi's visit to the US. He then goes on to confess that he is not an expert on Iraqi politics....an important disclaimer in the event that he is way off base in his analysis.

Coming from the city in which Faneuil Hall, the "Cradle of Liberty" presides, one would think that he would have some perspective on how most of Europe as well as many in America predicted that this country in its infancy would collapse under sectarian division. You would also think that he would appreciate the courage and perseverance of those who refused to succumb to pessimism and fatalistic predictions.

Of course, Secretary Rice is in Iraq to shore up the democratic process. Of course, there are sectarian divisions. And of course, we could leave Iraq and the Middle East to those who settle sectarian division with weapons of mass destruction, torture and death camps. Or we could continue to transform the Middle East. Sounds like a matter of choice to me.
