    • Abstract:
      Presents an essay by columnist Charles Krauthammer on President George Bush's predilection for dictators, such as China's Deng Xiaoping, and describes how the administration saved Saddam Hussein in the wake of the Persian Gulf war by muting threats, and grounding its aircraft in the name of stability and unity of the Iraqi state. Argues that the administration favors stable dictatorship to messy independence because of sheer familiarity.
