Thanks for admitting that. Loaded questions are not, in any way, legitimate. Your question assumes that anything that results from the riots is automatically democracy, which is far from the truth. Democracy might result, but it could just as easily lead to a tyranny. Considering the region that is a very real possibility that the Left, unfortunately, has deluded themselves into ignoring. The consequences of that naive idealist Leftist self-delusion have been severe, historically. We have Iran under Carter and, more importantly, Neville Chamberlain's appeasement strategy (culminating in the Munich Agreement) which missed the opportunity to stop the Nazi War Machine in it's infancy and forgo the loss of countless lives. Oh, and Foxy, it is nice to see that you conveniently miss the reasons I posted those various articles.
