Arab Democracy

Sometimes other writers capture my thoughts so well I can only quote them.
"When one looks across the Arab world today at the stunning spontaneous democracy uprisings, it is impossible to not ask: What are we doing spending $110 billion this year supporting corrupt and unpopular regimes in Afghanistan and Pakistan that are almost identical to the governments we’re applauding the Arab people for overthrowing?" Thomas Friedman, New York Times, 6 March 2011.
