Neocons Were Right

The people of Iran are demonstrating to the world that America's neocons were right all along -- by planting democracy in the heart of the Middle East, we have emboldened the people of the region to fight their despotic rulers. First in Lebanon, and now in Iran, the people increasingly look at Iraq, and recall the images of purple fingers raised proudly to show they have voted, and these people are saying to themselves, "Why not here? Why not us?"

Freedom is a universal human desire. Even in the face of bloodshed.
