Hamas Takes Control of Palestine

So let me get this straight…..
One of the big reasons why the neocons wanted us to go into Iraq was because it would have a “domino effect” where peace-loving democracy would spread throughout the Middle East.
They said the moderates in Iran would overthrow the hard-line mullahs and the Israel-hating, terrorist elements would be droned out to non-existence in Palestine.

Nearly four years later, we now have a hard-liner elected president of Iran who is faithful to the mullahs and wants the destruction of Israel and America, and the nuclear weapons to do it. And we have Hamas now in full, elected control of Palestine.
Meanwhile, we’re still Iraq’s occupiers with more than a trillion tax dollars spent and no end in sight.

What was that Ronald Reagan said about whether we’re better off now than we were four years ago?

Thankyou Chris, for , as always, a very well thought out opinion.

I take great pride in the fact that ALL of you have such knowlege, and are not adverse, to speak your mind.
I do believe that the U.S. was, and still is always taking "the high ground", is benevolent, and along with it's closest ally, the U.K. wanting to promote democracy and fair play throughout the world.
However, you are right, democracy as we know it is alien to many parts of the world.
Leaders, in these countries, only rule through suppression, sadly, that is all the populace of these countries know.

Where the world is headed is very frightening, for it is only a matter of time before these same tyrants obtain nuclear weopons.
Countries have been "taken over" by fanatics.

The "percieved middle east dominoe effect", has reulted in the democratisation of fanatisism, as you said Hamas and the rulers of Iran now put the western powers in a terrible predicament, Israel, as the ONLY true democracy in that region, is obviously in peril.
I do believe the Bush administration meant well, however, as this scenario is playing out a "hornets nest", has been created.
