    Default Bush's likening Middle East to Japan is ridiculous

    Many times Bush proclaimed that he is sure Iraq can become another Japan and touting how America brought Japan to life out of nowhere.

    Well, the history states otherwise. Japan's drive for prosperity in fact led to attack on Pearl Harbor. Japan sought to develop economically above all else way before America took it under its wing:

    After the Meiji Restoration, which replaced the previous government among other wide-sweeping effects, the Empire of Japan embarked on a rapid economic, political, and military expansion to achieve parity with the European and North American countries in terms of power.

    Iraq, on the other hand, has been backward since its inception and Iraqi people have no desire to compete with Europe or America.
