Is unbridled democracy really that scary to the US government?

  2. Morrius. Insufficient information. First, were those elections free and fair?

    In other words, your question is a shade too loaded, and could be readily mis-read for one’s own purposes.

    Of course it’s a scary thing. It’s the middle east…and a critical country with a peace deal with Israel. If someone is elected and that peace deal is axed, we could end up with war in a matter of days. We see it all the time. The deal is axed, the people get national pride, start acting out and next thing you know israel is dropping bombs. The US doesnt want to see something like that.
