Patrick Belton has actually been paying attention to what's going on in the Middle East. Two great link-filled posts here and here.

Patrick Belton failed to highlight an important reason why the Middle East’s chances for democracy have dramatically improved: the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The coalition forces have humiliated the Muslim world and forced its more sensible citizens to reexamine their political, cultural, and economic institutions. Does violence ever solve anything? Yup, it often most certainly does! John Lennon didn’t have a clue.
