"Yes they now support democracy in the Mid East (as a way to keep money out of the hands of mullahs, terrorist & fundamentalists ...by putting money in the hands of the people & growing a middle class). Democracy in the Middle East (encouraging it) is a Liberal Ideal. They just married our love of democracy with their desperate & wrong war-mongering to "hide" their past support of any strong man who would give Big Oil a great deal."

Do you seriously believe this crap?

Do you think that chimpco gives a damn about growing a stable middle class in Iraq?


Democracy in the middle east is a liberal ideal? I guess one could say that encouraging human rights and self determination are ideals that liberals would agree with, but I doubt that you would get agreement from liberals that it's ok to make them do it at the point of a gun.

You wouldn't get an agreement on that point from this liberal.
