I nominate either guage or Badboy here. The "baby boo" guy seems to have left the building.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Didn't we just remove one from Haiti?

I originally was thinking Bush but then I re read your requirements document and it said ruthless, not Truthless so Bushi is out.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I guess we need to rule by proxy since we are not that good at the empire game.

Well , no applications necessary. We have the biggest bastard with the right qualifications, proven ruthlessness, leadership skills and track record in jail, Saddam Hussein. No learning curve and something most Iraqis would prefer to Muqtada Al Sadr & friends. It' hard to imagine from here, but anyone else we might hand pick might very well be worse. Unrealistic visions of Iraqis walking hand in hand into a democratic future better be forgotten.
