Exactly right!
The expansion of 'democracy' into other national environments facilitates
international trade and associated fiscal invasion.
Democracy at home is a totally different scenario.
Just ask Wisconsin and others.
Are there still children in Gitmo?
How many people marched in London recently?
The driving forces behind the dispossession of the internet are not Saleh,
Assad and Ghaddafi.

Religion is regarded by the common people as true,
by the wise as false,
and by the rulers as useful.

Terrorism, the new religion.
