Can anyone here begin to fathom the mindset that allows someone to make 
such bizarre claims? Am I missing something, or is Mike actually 
implying that Iraq had "self-government" under Saddam Hussein but has 
been denied it by the United States? Is he actually implying that 
Afghanistan had "self-government" under the Taliban -- which didn't 
allow women to show their faces in public?

And this guy considers himself knowledgable about democracy?

Black is white. Up is down. Good is bad. Tyranny is self-government.

Even Orwell would be impressed.
