""Western "liberal" idiocy""

An odd (and, IMO skewed ) assessment. The western conservatives pushed as much, or, even morde than the liberals to change and maintain sympathetic governments, where interests warrant.

It seems merely a red herring anyway. The main interest is power and economics, not installing any type of legitimate government, democracy or not While the excuse of establishing some type of democracy is often used, the actual goal is to install and keep a regime in power that sympathic to economic andipower nterest in control.

The Russians have been as guilty as anyone for doing the same in the past, but have had less resources in recent years, focusing more on resolving their own affairs. Maybe they are now on the way to be back on track.
