THE TROUBLE WITH DEMOCRACY . . .

. . . is that it takes time. Ten years after their first open elections, Cambodia (home of the worse-than-Saddam piece of garbage formerly known as Pol Pot) held elections again last week. There were problems, but probably no more corruption than there was in Dick Daley's Chicago or Lyndon Johnson's Texas or Joe Kennedy's Massachusetts.

Peter Brookes believes (as do I) that this should be a beacon of hope for Iraq.
