Trade Unions? Women? But they are not mentioned in my military handbook...

After a week in which we saw Iraq reaping the benefits of democracy, now Afghanistan too can benefit from our well-intentioned meddling.

No wonder our European allies are so reluctant to commit the lives of even more of their soldiers to defending this Western puppet against the consequences of his actions. One has to ask in all seriousness, whether America or Britain ever sends in troops to support a government which is actually democratic. I know that often they go in to topple ugly dictatorships, but they always seem to replace them with something as bad or worse. Please could we persuade our respective military academies to stop turning out exquisitely perfected killers who think they have acquired even the slightest notion of how to run a country?
