CPA Heading Home

The Coalition Provisional Authority, after dissolving itself at the acceptance of the new Iraqi government, is heading home. About 200 of the remaining 600 CPA staffers will take on jobs in the planned US Super-embassy in Baghdad. It is reported the CPA had approximately 3000 employees at it's height after being formed in November of 2002.

As you can see, 4 out of 5 newly liberated nations prefer our brand of western imperialism over the other leading brands.

I wonder how many other countries have done that--come in, overthrown a corrupt, evil dictatorship, set things right and then withdrew? I can only think of three times it's been done, all by us: Grenada, Panama, and now Iraq (with the coalition partners). As I commented elsewhere, despite the left's fevered comparison of the Bush regime to the Nazis, there is some pretty good evidence that the rest of the world knows the truth. The left likes to natter that we spend more on defense than the next 9 nations combined. Doesn't that tell you that they trust us?
