Uncle NED Comes Calling

It is difficult to conceive of how a nation that was founded to defend individual rights and liberties has moved so far from its moorings that it has now embraced exporting democracy and nation building worldwide as its principal raison d’etre. Common sense and human decency together dictate that Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, having suffered so much, should be allowed to establish their own forms of government. But if you had hoped that the United States would just let the Egyptians and others get on with the process and elect a representative parliament, you would be wrong. http://original.antiwar.com/giraldi/2011/03/02/uncle-ned-comes-calling/
