Victor Davis Hanson Why Not Support Democracy?

Victor Davis Hanson on National Review Online

Why still no big-font, front-page headlines screaming, “Millions Vote in Historic Middle East Election!” or “Democracy Comes At Last To Iraq” or “America’s Push for Iraqi Democracy Working”?

I'd read the rest.

Also, not to jinx it or anything, but anybody else notice that it's awful quiet on the Iraq front? Last reported casualty was December 19. No giant bombs. No beheadings. What's that mean?

I think it means that the Sunni rejectionists are now waiting to see which way the wind blows on the elections. That means that they have control over the insurgents/terrorists much more than expected. It means, if things go right, this could mean a real peace.

But, as I've said this entire year starting on New Years day, Iraq is a done deal. It's free. It's democratic.

They win.

We win.

And, as I said way back when, you know we've won because Iraq and Afghanistan have slowly drifted off the news to a few minute clips on the daily activity.

No news here. Move along. Nothing to see.

However, don't think that doesn't mean the Moronic Muslim Trio (OBL, Zawahiri, Zarqawi) aren't planning anything big and nasty for the new year. It just means that they've lost in Iraq and Afghanistan and will be looking for a new place to sit down.
