I believe that when Democrats are in charge, they will try to influence who the leaders will be in unstable governments. I believe they will choose leaders who will serve the interests of the people and who will ultimately step down when the country is stabilized and ready for elections. I believe they will influence who will be elected in order to maintain the democracy.

I disagree with everything you say here.


You disagree that I believe those things?

I assure you, I do believe what I said I believe.

I disagree .... In particular, the idea that a country's democracy (rule by the people of that country) contains room within it for US "influence" all the way to picking or replacing leaders is anathema to the very concept.


So you would leave it up to an intervening communist country alone to choose an unstable government's leader?  (Do you recall that I specified "unstable?")

Okie doke, Roger. It's not exactly a good way to bring about a new democracy.
