The Fall of Iraq
Sunni Militants drive Iraqi Army from Mosul, via Vox Popoli.
And, via Rod Dreher, is Baghdad about to fall?
Time for a review:
1. Democracy is a process.
2. Multiculturalism is a ticking time bomb.
3. Ethnic nations exist; propositional nations are imposed.
4. When the State's ersatz civil order breaks down, libertarian ideology is not what results. Rather, the police and military leave to go protect their families.
5. Americans make terrible imperialists.
It would be nice to rush to the roof of my house and scream "We were right!" through a megaphone, but that would be unseemly and inconsequential.
