"A Republic, If You Can Keep It"

So said Benjamin Franklin on his way from the Constitutional Convention, in answer to "What have we got?"

Chartles Krauthammer wonders if Iraqis are ready to keep their republic, freshly delivered through the expenditure of Western blood and treasure. His pointed evaluation:
One can tinker with American tactics or troop levels from today until doomsday. But unless the Iraqis can put together a government of unitary purpose and resolute action, the simple objective of this war -- to leave behind a self-sustaining democratic government -- is not attainable.
Just for the record: God help Iran if the Pelosi Democrats cut and run from Iraq.
