Hi Tony,

There is always the Russian Democracy model of the Yeltsin era as
well.  Their success in Russia has emboldened the American ruling class
greatly.  They have the democratic election model down pat - huge bribes +
monopoly of media propaganda + (where and whenever necessary) intimidation
and murder.  Throw in a disoriented, demoralised and defeated populace and
there you have it - DEMOCRACY!

The missing ingredient in Iraq is the disoriented, demoralised and defeated
populace.

regards

Gary
