Is this the reason why hundreds of thousands of innocent people have been killed? It seems like that to to me and it seems like it was a mistake. The reasoning behind the 2003 Invasion of Iraq was covered up with this excuse: “We’re bringing democracy to the Middle-East.”
If this is what democracy has brought to the poor Iraqis of the country, than I think they would rather live without it. How have they benefited from it in any case? Their real life problems have been worsened by this American conquest into the Middle-East. And for what? The right to vote? That means absolutely nothing when you can barely afford food. The previous government might have been a dictatorial one, but at least it was stable and it kept a better standard of living for it’s inhabitants than the current one which has little-to-no actual control over the country.
United States politicians, both Democrat and Republican, bicker over the war all day long but none of them ever forget to point to the government and say, “we’ve made some progress.”
No you have haven’t. You haven’t made any progress because this government is so incapable of doing anything, it’ll have to be completely torn down, rebuilt and given much more control – and in that sense, it’s taken a step in the exact opposite direction. Before any forwardness is made, a strong Federal government is needed. A very strong one with far more control over the nation than the current one. Sounds a bit like the last government only a bit more oligarchic? Well that’s what I was going for. That’s the only type of system that will work in that region successfully and people need to realise that. The politicians have, which is why they privately finance most of them, they just know you haven’t and use that as an excuse to garner manipulated support from those who are less aware.
