Back in slightly older days, when there was a Clueless Old Liberal infesting this site (always crowing that Bush was to blame for everything. Every. Stinkin. Thing.) and President Bush was in office dealing with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq we heard some discussion that thanks to the wars in both places we would be seeing Democracies popping up in the middle East as others in the surrounding countries would get to witness democracy in action in those countries and would in turn desire it for themselves.
Here we are years later watching massive unrest in Egypt and now also in Jordan and one who thinks (like say, me!) must wonder aloud was Bush and/or his advisors right, or should I say are they now being proven correct in their earlier characterization of what would eventually happen in the middle East?
