    •  It should read as "openly" (0+ / 0-)

      Obviously the United States has enabled more dictatorships -- as quietly as possible -- than I can count. As for open support for the notion of a dictatorship? We don't respond well to that because it does open up inquiry into some of our more problematic policies to both the American electorate AND the International community. I can appreciate that my comment was not specific enough here and understand, upon re-reading, how it could be misconstrued.

      •  Right. Bahrain? We're really subtle about our (0+ / 0-)

        support?

        Jordan? Saudi Arabia?

        I don't think I really need to go on.  From Pinochet to Suharto to Mubarak to Abdullah II , we support and have supported dictators very openly.
