The Failure of Democracy

edwardpig has a nice post excerpt up on the Coalition community blog:

If the Bush administration really cared about bringing democracy to Iraq (a prerequisite of which is to get the country on its feet again), they wouldn't be excluding many major industrialized nations from bidding on reconstruction contracts, simply because they opposed the war. (For that matter, if they cared about the U.S. taxpayer, they'd open the bidding to everyone to insure we get the lowest price. Remember, those tax dollars are 'your money'). And if the excluded nations really cared, they wouldn't be threatening to withhold future funding, or refusing to cancel outstanding debts in retaliation.

He's stirred up a hornet's nest in the comments, so go read the thread. And don't forget to click through to his site for the whole thing--great stuff.
