Mideast protests and uprisings

If it were not obvious before, perhaps it is now: Not even the most powerful nation can ever force people to be free. It's a decision that they have to make for themselves.

I get a bit nervous from all the celebration of democracy in the Middle East. Democracy does not always lead to liberty; in fact it seldom does. Unless by some miracle people in the Middle East have some political maturity that I am unaware of, or can develop it quickly, I think we will soon see more examples of one man, one vote, one time.
