Has Bush Changed the Middle East?

Those who have opposed the War in Iraq are quick to contend that the President led us into an unjust war with false or misleading rhetoric about weapons of mass destruction and Iraq’s ties to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Yet, we at the Yellow Line believe that the war has had positive ramifications throughout the Middle East. Syrian troops are being withdrawn from Lebanon. Muammar Qadhafi has given up weapons of terror and mass destruction. Israelis and Palestinians are working towards peace.

Martin Peretz, from the New Republic, makes the case that the Bush Administration deserves some recognition for promoting democracy and liberalism in the Middle East.
