Democracy in the Hornet's Nest

Thomas Friedman begins his essay in the New York Times this way: "Each day we get closer to the Iraqi elections, more voices are suggesting that they be postponed. This is a tough call, but I hope the elections go ahead as scheduled on Jan. 30. We have to have a proper election in Iraq so we can have a proper civil war there."

This once again raises the question Jon Stewart asked a mere two months ago: "What does one wear to a civil war?"
