Pournelle on Democracy in Iraq

Jerry Pournelle, the great science fiction writer ("The Mote in God’s Eye," and others) has a few good and interesting thoughts on why patience, a solid middle class, and no fear of losing an election are needed to establish a constitutional or "democratic regime" regime in Iraq (see under April 28th). Long and thoughtful.
