Reader comment on item: After Saddam? Remaking the Mideast

Submitted by Jeff (United States), Feb 11, 2003 at 16:37

Conservatives believe in "liberal democracy." The term has a context.

And "conservative democracy" does indeed make sense. The term "conservative" has different contexts and meanings as well. "Conservatives" in China or the Soviet Union are hard left anti-democrats. "Conservatives" in the U.S. support liberal democracy.

Please get your meanings straight.
