Democracies Don't War, but They Do Invade & Assasinate

The lead Democrat on the Iraq Study Group suggested the U.S. should attack al Qaeda in Pakistan to take out their reconstituted leadership. Lee Hamilton, co-chair of the Rich Americans Studying Iraq from Afar Group, offered his thoughts on CNN.

Should the U.S. invade Pakistan, we would join other democracies crossing territorial lines to root out terrorists. Democratic Turkey conducts forays into the Middle East's newest democracy, Iraq on a regular basis. Last summer, Israel steamrolled democratic Lebanon to get 5,000 Hezbollah guerillas.

When President Bush launches his next pat "democracies don't war" verbal missile, you'd best run for cover. It may not be filled with hope. Incoming!
