Imposing democracy?

From Galen

Rice, in her visit to Paris today, said:
"'Freedom by its very nature must be homegrown. It must be chosen. It cannot be given, and it certainly cannot be imposed."'

Hmm... It can't be imposed, eh? Hmm....

"The people of Iraq chose freedom when they voted despite the terrorists' threats of suicide bombings, Rice said."

Those who voted certainly did choose freedom and democracy. But we definitely imposed it on them.

In other news, Americans say that Social Security is in crisis, but favor having the wealthy pay for the gaps in Social Security over private accounts. Now wouldn't that be the conservatives' worst nightmare.
