The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: Cursed by Oil: “The Bush team has made a mess in Iraq, but the pathologies of the Arab world have also contributed ? and the sheer delight that some Arab media take in seeing Iraq go up in flames is evidence of that. It’s time for the Arab world to grow up ? to stop dancing on burning American jeeps and claiming that this is some victory for Islam.

One thing about countries like Singapore, Korea, Taiwan and Japan, they may not have deserts but they sure know the difference between the mirage and the oasis ? between victories that come from educating your population to innovate and ‘victories’ that come from a one-night stand by suicidal maniacs like 9/11.”
