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.
