You Just Can't Trust Some People with Democracy!

Democracy has been in action in Lebanon but strangely the so-called paragon of freedom and democracy, the USA, is not cheering. And neither is the much-touted "only genuine democracy" in the Middle-East, Israel.

Oh, I see why the Americans and Israelis aren’t too enthusiastic for Lebanese democracy! The victors of the recent elections in Southern Lebanon are the Hezbollahs, and winning by a landslide too.

Damn it, why can’t those silly Lebanese vote for someone like Islam Karimov, the sort of guy Washington wants. We recall Bush welcoming Islam Karimov warmly to the White House, and why not - afterall, he has proven to be a great pal of Bush and his neo-cons.
