Reader comment on item: [Saudi Arabia:] Not Friend or Foe

Submitted by Kashif (United States), May 7, 2003 at 06:31

I find it quite surprising how Americans keep pushing for democracy all over the world, but at the same time want to subjugate the people of the world to their own narrow minded ideologies!

Any time someone from the Arab/Muslim world differs with them on any religious/social/political view, they become "The Enemy". And now, this same thought pattern is turning towards its Allies in t Europe.

Hint: France.

Last I checked, democracy is a government by the people for the people, but nowadays in the USA, it has a new meaning.

Government for the people by the Americans.
