Shifting Sands

First, no chemical weapons, now, no shining beacon of western style democracy. According to the Washington Post, the administration is now resigned to the fact that Iraq will not be "a model new democracy, a self-supporting oil industry or a society in which the majority of people are free from serious security or economic challenges."

There also continue to be serious problems with water and electricity. I guess that the US really isn't into nation building.
