Remember back in 2004 or 2005? I do. Then President Bush telling us that if we help transofrm Iraq into a democratic style of government, that maybe, just maybe, other citizens of Middle Eastern countries would take notice. And if enough of them took notice, maybe, just maybe, enough of those good folks would rise up and attempt to gain some form of Democracy in their countries.
Remember the response to those ideas by the mass media and the so called "educated" folks in our country? Bush in an idiot. Bush has no clue. Those people don't want democracy. Bush is a dreamer. Bush is just doing it for oil. Bush...
Yeah, we know. It is all Bush's fault.
Here we are in 2011 and, my oh my, how things have changed. All of a sudden the idea of democracy is taking off in the middle east. Besides Egypt, people in other countries are starting to get organized and take action. Every day another country gets added to the list. The people there want democracy.
