During Nam, Senator William Fulbright, a Democrat from Arkansas, was highly critical of our presence there. To illustrate his scorn for the idea of "democratization", he told the following anecdote in his book The Arrogance of Power.
I am reminded of the three Boy Scouts who reported to their scoutmaster that as their good deed for the day, they had helped an old lady across the street. "That's fine," said the scoutmaster, "but why did it take three of you?" "Well," they explained, "she didn't want to go."
Both the anecdote and the title of his book apply to Iraq.
