Every country in the world supports Democracy @least for the sake of saying they support. I believe democracy is a very good idea and must be implemented by all countries. The United States, the so called champion of democracy insists on spreading democracy to every corner of the world. Why, then, does history prove that US has rarely done that? South Korea became a true democracy in the late 1980s. Same is the story with Iran and Chile where the US overthrew legitimate democracies and installed puppet dictators.
Then there is the United Nations. The best example of double speak. Why are there five security council members who can veto any resolution? Why are they permanent? What is the basis for this? Is it because they were the countries that were powerful enough to beat Germany, Italy and Japan in WW II? If that is the case then “might is right” is what comes to my mind. Oh the hypocrisy.
Now US invaded Iraq talking about a dictator and wants to invade Iran inspite of Iran being a democracy. I think it is time to stop calling US a democracy altogether considering what happens in the Senate and in the White house.
North Korea is officially known as Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Huh? What democracy? My understanding of democracy is that the leaders of a nation are servants to the people not the other way round. The other way round is aristocracy.
