Let me begin by saying, I do not feel that our government KNOWINGLY does this, but this is the way it works.
Let's say you want to take an area of conflicting ethnic groups that is riddled with Tribal Warfare (you killed my brother I'll kill yours, never
What do you do to democraticize it?
Storm it and force them to cooperate?
No way in hell, democracies can not do that, people need to be willing to accept a democracy, before it can become strong.
So what's the best way?
Prop up a dictator over all that disputed land, he'll organize the people into ONE nation, and subdue the people and end Vendettas (Killing in a
blood fude//non-stop fighting until you've gained vengance)
So the dictator took care of all the nasty business for you, all the killing, all the imprisoning, just to gain organization over this land.
So what does a dictator do?
He makes it perfectly capable, to now over throw him, and easily with little resistance, set up a democracy!
Very easily, all you do is keep a presence there, you don't even really fight constantly, just police more or less.
I think that our government isn't manipulating this purposely (propping up dictators and such just to tear them back down) but I think they are
definately beginning to see this, and maybe feeling to take advantage of this.
See they created organized governments over a diffuse culture, such as in Iraq, which is really the only case, South Vietnam is another but that
failed. They don't really expect them to become dictatorships, but more or less without our presence they do, but now the dictator "unites the
people" through force, and we simply knock him over and replace him with a democratic government modeled after american ideals, to a people who 30
years before could never be brought together to vote in a congress, because it would errupt in killing.
