Democ­racy irony

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“It is our friends in Saudi Ara­bia, Jor­dan, Egypt, Morocco, the Gulf states and Is­rael who seem most ap­pre­hen­sive about [hold­ing] any more [demo­cratic] elec­tions among the Arab masses. The Is­lamists seem to wel­come them — and to suc­ceed in them.”

So is the irony pointed out by con­ser­va­tive com­men­ta­tor Pat Buchanan, ques­tion­ing whether U.S. sol­diers and Marines should con­tinue to die for “democ­racy” in the Is­lamic world when, in fact, democ­racy may pro­duce vic­tory for the po­lit­i­cal prog­eny of what he calls the 1.2 bil­lion and grow­ing “Mus­lim broth­er­hood.”
