F: Bengal? Kerala? Guyana? Nicaragua? Zimbabwe? South Africa? Bissau? Burkina Faso? Nepal? Hell, even Yugoslavia?"

Qx: Given your racist attitudes you would probably like to see all of these nations under the boot of transnationals. Bangal and Kerala are democratic in the way that most people in the West would define democratic. That is that those governments were voted in.

Nicaragua was basically a blackmail situation with the USA trying to assasinate the entire country. As for Zimbabwe I wuld hardly call Ian Smith (Mugabe's predecessor) a democrat. South Africa? Well, we all know that yo love the AWB neo-Nazis.

Bissau? What do you expect out of an IMF engineered client state? Same goes for Burkina Fasso. Nepal? Ooops, here comes Shining Path!!!! Now for Yugoslavia. Why does anybody defend these coutries? Only if they really are apologists or are ranting rightwingers like you who would rather see people suffer in order to satisfy your egotistical ambitions.

: But your right, I did lose my composure. There's no call for that.
