As free as Iraq will ever be

While I was always against and always will be against nation building (except after a great world war), we have the opportunity to see an interesting phenomena. Because of our occupation of Iraq, it currently has more freedom than it ever had or ever will have. Even with all the terror and killing, Iraq is exercising its new found freedom.
I did not think our welcomed removal of Sadam would last very long, and it didn't. And after we are gone, we will be missed. The necon's theory of setting up a democracy is noble but idealistic.
After we leave, Iraq will split up in a civil war or be dominated by the mullahs or a tyrant like Sadam. And, as bad as the terror is now, this will be remembered as a golden age.
