Even the United States was not formed Democratically. The Constitutional Convention was top secret; the Federalist Papers were publically disclosed
doccuments that had nothing to do with the Public (they didn't vote on the issue) and the authors were at the time unknown (later revealed to be Jay,
Hamilton and Madison).
The Press was not allowed to report on the Constitutional Convention in anyway.
The only Democratic aspects of the creation of the United States was the fact that the effort was to establish a Democracy; but the officials who were
sent were sent by the States not by the People, the States didn't inform the people who were sent and those sent were not held accountable to
This was all for a very important reason.
The Founding Fathers did not believe you could create a Democracy Democratically.
As such, should our methods in Iraq be as undemocratic...to force the creation of a solid government rather than coax the people to "create
one"...which is something the Founding Fathers didn't even believe was possible?
