Default Democratic Revolutions Spread

"Iraqi democracy will succeed, and that success will send forth the news from Damascus to Tehran that freedom can be the future of every nation."

The audience at the National Endowment for Democracy in Washington answered with hearty applause.

"The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a watershed event in the global democratic revolution."

That was....2003. George W. Bush.

Now look at today, he called it. Democratic revolution all over the world. Despots and tyrants everywhere are nervous as hell. Oppressed people everywhere demanding freedom. Like a virus, it spreads.

And here is a report on Iraq itself, today:

A Democratic Iraq Is Emerging - Newsweek
Quote:
The elections to be held in Iraq on March 7 feature 6,100 parliamentary candidates from all of the country's major sects and many different parties. They have wildly conflicting interests and ambitions. Yet in the past couple of years, these politicians have come to see themselves as part of the same club, where hardball political debate has supplanted civil war and legislation is hammered out, however slowly and painfully, through compromises
Read on at link.

Will the opponents of Bush ever admit he was right? History is playing out just as he said while President, and just as he said in his book. I guess you can continue denying and bashing and be happy living on the wrong side of history, or you can stand and applaud this visionary man with me.

Ppl can blame economic conditions, food shortages and high prices, they can make all the excuses, whatever they want but the truth and they know it themselves is, the freedom in Iraq is spreading. The information superhighway is the carrier of the virus. Bush planted a seed and look at it starting to crop up!

The terrorists knew this all too well, which is why they tried so desperately to stop it. But it can't be stopped now. Ppl want a one world order? Its coming, just not the communist totalitarian John Lennon type one they imagined!


We get Carter? Hostages taken, free ppl all over the world living in fear.

We get Reagan? We get Tienanmen square and the fight for freedom. We get the Soviet Bloc crumbling like the house of cards it always was.

We get Clinton? NINE terrorist attacks either on our soil or on our personnel overseas. Nothing at all done about it. There's your 9-11 legacy.

We get Bush? We hit back at the terrorists finally. Tyrants and despots backing down. Iraq is liberated. Global Democratic Revolution seeds planted and begins to grow.

We get Obama? Increased terrorist attacks and attempts here at home and abroad after he went around apologizing to the muslim world. He tries but cant stamp down the revolution! Despots and tyrants everywhere are emboldened again, even Gaddafi has resurfaced flapping his yap. He's no longer worried about having to eat a smart bomb for a midnight snack.

But this revolution is far too powerful for Obamas machinations, terrorist acts or Gaddafi's piehole to stop it. Its inevitable.

There must not be too many leftonazis here. Just the very simple posting of this same topic got me banned permanently from the democratic underground forum. This after hundreds of howls as replies.

The DU is a very childish place, I used to keep an account there just to watch how infantile they can be.

Wow looking back on this and seeing what continues to happen really is something. Syria, Libya, a few other countries are about to be free due to the Bush Doctrine. Its undeniable.

We really need to focus the cause of liberty on the U.S. As other countries are becoming more free, we have become far less so.
