Really, try to internalize and understand this quote. I become incredibly upset just thinking about it. Took it off from the comments board on parapundit.
“It's much easier to justify an invasion by claiming that you are deposing a dangerous dictator and bringing democracy to the oppresed Iraqi masses. When challanged on that point, you accuse your opponents of anti-Arab racism. It's a crude tactic, but it muted fully-legitimate questions about whether or not the Iraqis would even WANT to practice anything that the West would consider to be a legitimate form of representative government. In other words, the accusation of racism kept this line of questioning quiet for a time, and that's what they were after.”
On a totally different note, this is something you also have to remember, and take into account when thinking about my dating disparity post some time ago:
from wikipedia on sexual attraction:
"It has been shown that women prefer more masculine men during the fertile period of the menstrual cycle and more feminine men during other parts of the cycle. This distinction supports the sexy son hypothesis, which posits that it is evolutionarily advantageous for women to select potential fathers who are traditionally masculine rather than the best caregivers. Masculine facial features are characterized by a strong brow and a broad jaw whereas feminine features are less pronounced. Likewise, tall men might more frequently be considered sexually attractive than men of shorter stature."
