No takers, huh? Well, let throw one out that will interest the G-man.

This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy cried "Whee, Whee, Whee!" all the way home.

There, now where does this lead?

OK mona, now I am confused.

Let me just say... I like cheese too. Oh and bread too.

Very clever Charles. You know the G-Man will not be able to resist.

well there is irony in that manifest destiny had its origins in the democratic party and was initally rejected by republicans. thought it was later embraced by them it is now carried out to the nth degree by an illiterate texan....another irony, that he hails from the state that was itself an independent republic.

lime said...

what? you asked....

MONA said...

Manifest Destiny. Hmmm.I guess the idea of America being the chosen one to represent the democratic rule all over the world is itself a flawed perception.

In America it might have worked well, although not without extracting its price. But as a foreign policy, it is not without the danger of being spelled as something that is a ' selfish motivation'. It would be seen as something not without an ulterior motive or a hidden agenda. The very fact that it has been viewed as 'Divine' policy by some makes it all the more doubtful to the rest of the world, that might not necessary be following the same religious beliefs.So It will always be seem as a renewed effort to annex and therefore shall meet much opposition, both by the foreign countries as well as at home.
It makes many people see America as a bully nation trying to impose its ideas upon their cultures.

The Chechnya was much opposed by the world all over. & now so is Iraq. Will they be able to impose a democratic republic in a nation so deeply rooted in Oligarchy?

They have started from a wrong end.
