The "Bush Doctrine" Around the World

May 9, 2005

(broadcast stream) (.mp3 download Right-click; “Save Target as”; “Save”)
A brutal dictator kills and tortures his people and has close ties to Al Quaeda. He also has the quiet support of George W. Bush. Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia and working hard to return there, is the only indicted war criminal in the world that led a nation and is escaping justice. And Bush, for some reason, is helping him.
Is Charles Taylor just one notorious example of the application of the “Bush Doctrine” around the world, which provides freedom and democracy . . . for all oil-producing countries headed by dictators who won’t sell to the United States?
As for oil-rich dictatorships (like Equitorial Guinea) or genocidal dictatatorships without oil (like Sudan), their people just don’t deserve freedom and democracy. Do they?

    Pre-emptive Humpty-dumptyism is a problem, not a solution
    The neo-Domino Theory is as much of a myth as the original Domino Theory that was debunked with the blood of a generation 30 years ago
    The minds of survivors must adapt and overcome with minds thinking thoughts greater than the thoughts that created their problems

    I know 9-11 was terrible but look at the way we treat Islam.

    What in the hell was she thinking? A democratic governor opposed to election reform?

    Yes, the 2006 elections will be another disaster. The democrats are a pretty sorry bunch. The democratic governor, here in AZ, even rejected an election reform bill that required paper ballots. At least they passed a similar one in Montana.
