If there is nothing in it for us, our government
wouldn't give two cents about Democracy in Iraq
or any other country.

There are so many countries, whose democratically
elected governments have been overthrown by
the our CIA.

Guatemala, Iran, Chile, just to name three.

We don't mind overthrowing demcratically elected
presidents in foreign nations and installing
brutal dictators.

Democracy is the only hope for moderating the Muslim world, and we should all hope for its success in its uphill struggle there.
