Some very good questions

From a commenter on this iSteve thread, in response to a loathsome peroration by Tom Friedman.

On Friedman, Iraq and War For Democracy:

At this point these "wars for democracy" are the endgame stage of an intellectually bankrupt totalitarian empire. Thinking people in Iraq ought to be asking some questions by now. What the hell is in store for us?

Here is a list of questions about a possible future of Iraq. But it's a future that is only attainable in the best case scenario (meaning akin to the utopia we experience here in modern America, of course!)

Q: How long until the State of Iraq is reconceptualized not as a sovereign nation but as a commercial component of the future Middle East Union (so-called "economic cooperation zone")?

Q: How long until Iraq's borders are opened to any and all immigrants?

Q: How long until the Iraq government is forced to adopt "free trade" policies and the country is flooded with cheap labor?

Q: How long until the Iraqi taxpayers are saddled with a "federal reserve system" (non-transparent central banking scheme that debases the currency and stealthily skims untold wealth from the national treasury)?

Q: How long until a culture-cracking PC media regime is installed in Iraq nationwide that continually bashes and marginalizes the "nativist" and "bigoted" ethnic Iraqi people?

Q: How long until abortion and birth control are readily available across Iraq?

Q: How long until the Iraq population birthrate crashes far below replacement levels and the media demands mass immigration as a solution to save the natives' social security system?

Q: How long until Iraqi women are protected by special laws and earn more college degrees than Iraqi men and hold the power in divorce court and child custody disputes?

Q: How long until Iraq government surveillance cameras are installed throughout every Iraqi city and town?

Q: How long until the entire Iraq phone system software architecture is controlled by foreign intelligence agency contractor fronts?

Q: How long until Iraqi schools are saturated in slick anti-Iraq propaganda designed to distort and defame Iraq's historical figures, which demoralizes patriots and energizes alien immigrants harboring grudges?

Q: How long until the religion of the vast majority of Iraq citizens is relentlessly ridiculed by politicians, writers, journalists, celebrities and entertainers, and the Islamic crescent is displayed submerged in a glass of urine at big city art museums?

Q: How long until the Iraq Armed Forces are sent off to far corners of the globe to participate in other Wars for Democracy?

Q: In other words, how long until Iraq is transitioned into New World Order police state society - uh, a modern Western-style democracy?

Why does Tom Friedman's supposed great and good "Open Society" never come in for criticism?

Domestically, the Open Society criminalizes consensual acts and provides the most depraved among us with scrupulous subsidies and legal protections. Internationally, the Open Society spends blood and treasure projecting its gnostic gospel into countries that have made clear they want no part of it.

For Heaven's sake, who can blame them?
