Steinberg on Federal Nations

Here’s his potshot from today’s column:

George W. Bush’s claim that our goal is to install democracy in Iraq is a recipe for quagmire. Iraq is a Frankenstein’s monster of sects cobbled together by the British, a non-nation that flies apart without a tyrant holding it together. America can’t be the new tyrant.

The United States is also a Frankenstein’s monster of sects, races, and lifestyles cobbled together which seems to hold together without a tyrant.

Which isn’t to say that certain leaders aren’t in favor of a tyranny of our betters in Washington.
