Bush's final excuse fails

The sequence of rationales for invading Iraq--WMD; Saddam's ties to al-Qaeda and 9/11; deposing a despot--has come and gone, leaving Bush with this last excuse: bringing democracy to the nation and through its example spreading it throughout the Middle East and, I supppose, the world.

Can you imagine any nation viewing Iraq's experience and wishing to follow it?
