ANOTHER NERVOUS LIBERAL HAWK? I'm willing to count Tom Friedman in on this one. He has been more consistent than any other first-tier columnist in focusing on Middle Eastern democracy. As he puts it,
When it comes to building democracy in Iraq, the Europeans are uninterested, the Americans are hypocritical and the Arabs are ambivalent. Therefore, undertaking a successful democratization project there, in a way that will stimulate positive reform throughout the region, will require a real revolution in thinking all around — among Americans, Arabs and Europeans. If done right, the Middle East will never be the same. If done wrong, the world will never be the same.
