    Here is an intresting fact, according to http://www.newyouth.com/interestingstats.asp#US has bombed :

    Since World War II, US has bombed the following nations:

    * China 1945-46
    * Korea 1950-53
    * China 1950-53
    * Guatemala 1954
    * Indonesia 1958
    * Cuba 1959-60
    * Guatemala 1960
    * Congo 1964
    * Peru 1965
    * Laos 1964-73
    * Vietnam 1961-73
    * Cambodia 1969-70
    * Guatemala 1967-69
    * Grenada 1983
    * Lebanon 1984
    * Libya 1986
    * El Salvador 1980s
    * Nicaragua 1980s
    * Panama 1989
    * Iraq 1991-99
    * Sudan 1998
    * Afghanistan 1998
    * Yugoslavia 1999

    However, NONE of these bombings have led to a "democratic" government even though this was more often than not the reason given for the aggression.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    I think we could plot a pretty strong correlation between bombings of foriegn nations and presidential approval ratings.

    Like when we bombed Al Jazeera and the Chinese embassy.

    Indonesia and Peru are democracies.

    Iraq arguably is.

    And were any of those countries democratic before US bombing?

    Actually now that I'm checking like half those countries are democracies or very corrupt democracies.

    EDIT: My bad, I didn't realize this thread was started by an Iranian. No point in responding.

    Wait...did you just say Iraq is a democracy???

    You should apply for a position in Republican campaigns. Hell, Bush might even make you his adviser to the Middle East.
