Just back up a bit. What does the Western notion of democracy have any bearing on what's going on anywhere else? That's a bad premise. This whole "Arab Spring" had all those notions in mind. It is a grand notion. All you have to do is forget thousands of years of tribal or religious friction if not hate. It's so easy. We won the wars. We colonized the Middle East and Africa. We defined the borders to make countries. We made a new Iraq. My point? Those people have discovered the notion of "Freedom". They can't forget a deep inbred grudge. That will make all the Western good intentions pointless.
