Democracy against USA Attack

I was talking with my friend with political science and international relations background about democracy and wars. We discussed how there has been no major war between two democracies in the history. We realized that Pakistan and India fought in Kargil in 1998 while being democracies, but that can be viewed as a mis-adventure of Pakistan military.

In the end, we agreed that democracy is good for avoiding wars among nations. If two countries want to avoid a war between themselves, then they should strengthen democracy in themselves.

Later I thought about the attacks of USA and UK on Iraq, French wars in Africa, Israel engagement with Arabs, democratic India’s wars with Pakistan. In the meantime, the Vietnam war in which USA was the bad guy.

I think democracy is necessary in a country to be safe from a democratic country, but if a country has democracy then it is not necessary that it will never attack another weaker country with the wrong objectives. Just like democratic USA and democratic UK attacked Iraq, and democratic USA had destroyed Vietnam.

USA must Stop Supporting Dictatorship now

Its time for USA to stop supporting dictatorship in other countries, and apologize for the past. USA has been supporting dictators and ruining democracy all over the world, on name of secularism and ant-extremism. Egypt is one such example.

Pakistanis blame USA for most of the problems they are facing now, as USA has supported Ayub Khan, Zia-ul-Haq, and Musharraf. And now Musharraf is in USA.

Egyptians are also thinking that Hosni Mubarak is President yet only due to illegal US interventions.

USA is considering itself a champion of freedom, democracy, and human-rights, but on the contrary, USA is also a full-supporter of the dictators who are violating freedom, democracy, and human-rights of people in their countries.

This is the main reason for the so poor image of USA in the world, specially the developing world. And the most affected ones are the common Americans who apparently know nothing about these.
