Arabs: America Stole Democracy from Us

University of Maryland/Zogby International poll: People in Arab nations believe the Iraq war has brought less peace, more terrorism and contrary to Washington's claims, will result in less democracy, according to a poll published Friday. Eighty-one percent of respondents said the Iraq war had brought "less peace" to the Middle East, while only six percent believed it had enhanced peace. Seventy-eight percent of people questioned believed the Iraq war had resulted in more terrorism than before, while 58 percent said it brought less democracy, with only nine percent believing it enhanced democratic development. While the administration of President George W. Bush frequently argues that it has liberated Iraqis from Saddam Hussein, only six percent of those surveyed believed that the Iraqi people were better off after the war. Seventy-seven percent thought they were worse off. Tovya says: Folks, the Arabs are crackpots... no doubt about it. Their 12th century brains seriously feel that life was better with Saddam Hussein. I mean, they really believe that Iraq was "democratic" when Saddam was in power and that America came along and messed everything up. That's why I always say that doing anything good for these people is a waste of time. They like their medieval lifestyle. This just goes to show that not everyone deserves freedom. Some people just enjoy being slaves too much.

The Arabs are not crackpots. Your 12th century comment indicates a personal or racial sense of superiority immediately undermined by the tenor and content of your own comments.

I've only read what you reported and given the realities in Iraq it is a certainty that life under a tyrannical dictator was more peaceful, less violent and offered more hopes and opportunities for more people than what they have now (I'm talking raw numbers here - statistically, things actually were better for most).

Perhaps during what amounts to a civil war and an occupation it is quite understandable if the vast majority are not enamoured with America's "democratic" offering.
