They also uses the word Democracy in an Orwellian fashion and they overthrow real democracies only to replace them with Pinochet like oligharchies. They are like Napolean. Napolean crowned himself Emperor in the name of spreading the values of the French Revolution.
If enacted, the new bill -- the ADVANCE (which stands for Advance Democratic Values, Address Nondemocratic Countries, and Enhance) Democracy Act of 2005, introduced into both houses on March 3 -- would bring about a fundamental change in U.S. foreign policy. To maintain a regional balance of power, ensure access to vital resources, and pursue larger national security goals such as the "war on terror," the United States has traditionally worked with dictators big and small, from the tyrants of the past (such as Anastasio Somoza in Nicaragua) to current autocratic allies (such as Pervez Musharraf in Pakistan and Crown Prince Abdullah in Saudi Arabia). The ADVANCE Democracy Act, the foreign policy version of "Just Say No," on the other hand, would attempt to steer the United States away from engaging with tyrants under any circumstances.
To give you idea of how craven and hypocritical the sponsers of this bill are, just look at this quote from ,Tom Lantos when he was speaking to a Labor Party member in the Knesset that was visiting the US as a part of a peace delegation.
Lantos explained to his guest from Israel that there's no lack of Iraqi opposition figures in exile, but until they learn how to run a state, "we'll be there." According to Lantos that interim period, with an American-sponsored dictator in power, should last between five to six years.
Avital says she asked how one can talk about a dictator in Iraq and at the same time demand "democratic reforms" in the territories as a precondition for renewing the peace process. Lantos said that democratization in the territories is just a general "road map." He reminded her that "the U.S. didn't turn into a democracy overnight." In any case, he promised her that after America gets rid of all the regimes of evil, it will go straight to Syria, "and tell young Assad that's what will happen to him if he doesn't stop supporting terrorism."
To give you some examples of how hostile the Neocons and their Democratic Party allies are when it comes to Democracy, just look at the overthrow of the democratically elected leader of Haiti, Jean Bertrand Aristide. A dictator now rules Haiti! There was also the attempted overthrow of twice elected Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. They have been threatening Hugo with isolation and overthrow for the past week!After the 2002 coup an unnamed Bush official said, "He was democratically elected. He won a majority of votes. Legitimacy is something that is conferred not just by a majority of votes, however."
Seriously does anyone trust that Bush has the same definition of Democracy as the rest of us? Let's not forget how he won the election in 2000. His brother purged god knows how many Blacks from the voting rolls on completely false pretenses!.
The "Ceder Revolution" appears to be a sham as well. Anyone notice that the prosyrian demonstrations are actually larger than the antisyrian ones? Why shouldn't they be? Afterall Syria went in to stop a brutal civil war. It was invited in by the US, the Arab League, and Israel. It is likely that civil war will return when Syria leaves.
Needless to say we all should be very sceptical of Bush's claims about spreading Democracy around the world. Please read 1984 again!
I put alot of work into this! I think it is important and should be recommended!
