The Bush Doctrine Wins Again!

In yet another stunning victory for the Bush Doctrine of "Talk Democracy, But Do Nothing", the world's fifth largest democracy, Bangladesh, has now become -- a repressive military dictatorship.  They join the ranks of Bush's other favourite allies -- Mushareff in Pakistan, Mubarak in Egypt, the leaders of the post-Soviet Central Asian Republics -- who have rejected electoral politics in favour of the big gun.

The US State Department has said they are not interested in a specific date for a return to Bangladeshi elections.  I guess it is easier for them to deal with one big general rather than that awful mess you get when the ordinary people get to choose.

Nothing in this comment is surprising about the current American administration, but it always annoys me how little media attention these items get. Former playboy playmates get more play time then countries disintergrating into the oblivion of human rights abuses. Thanks for posting the links too, much more interesting than the old CBC.
