Western Foreign Policy Success Updated

Recall how in our efforts to overthrow evil tyrants and bring peace and democracy to the oppressed, we invaded Iraq, deposing the murderous Saddam Hussein. We thought you might like a current measure of the fruit of our labour. From NightWatch yesterday:

On Friday, 84 people were killed and 77 wounded in attacks in 12 towns. Most of them were shooting intermixed with a few bombings. On Saturday, 46 people were killed and 106 were injured in 17 towns. Most of the attacks were bombings, with a few shootings and clashes. On Sunday, 77 people were killed and 223 injured by bombings and shootings in 18 towns.

That’s 207 dead and 406 injured in 3 days. Not bad! The Iraqi people are so much better off now. Right? And now that we are just about finished bringing peace and democracy to Afghanistan, think of how bright their future will be for Afghanis, especially for those who collaborated with the allied forces. They’ll be paraded through the streets as heroes, right? Surely Syria is about ready for Western intervention and salvation. And Egypt is just warming up. Such exciting times ahead for Western foreign policy wonks.
