Of course, if it was up to us they would never have happened

So, the U.N. has congratulated the Iraqis on holding successful elections. Okay, you know what U.N.? Shut the fuck up! If it had been left to the U.N. these elections would never have happened in the first place and Saddam Hussein would still be in power. I am so sick of all this sudden outpouring of support for Iraqi democracy from people who were perfectly content to leave a dictator in place forever. It's like you get to be this great supporter of democracy who also gets all the wonderful anti-war cred too. Except that the world isn't like that, unpleasant decisions need to be made so that good things can happen. Unless you're willing to acknowledge that the invasion of Iraq was a good idea -- you don't have to say it was perfectly orchestrated -- I don't want to hear a single word from you on these elections. Are we clear?
