Interesting if pointless observations.
You do not impose democracy. You remove the shackles that prevent it.
Who said that? Somebody for sure.
Anyhoo, the world after September 11 and Bali and Madrid, after Zarqawi declares man's law is incompatible with divine law and therefore man should not vote (...and womend should wear blankets on their heads, natch...) and if he tries he is an apostate or infidel or some such and must die.
This world is not Chile, Iran or Guatemala. It is not Vietnam or Korea, Panama or Grenada. It is not the Falklands.
This world is nice for the most part but thoroughly spoiled by religious maniacs of the Islamic persuasion.
Liberty, democracy IS the cure.
