Note to Pumkinhead

I am watching Sharansky argue with Buchanan on MTP when the irony dawns on me that if Sharansky is in fact correct, Buchanan will win the argument, and that the only hope Sharansky has of convincing the audience that he is correct is if Buchanan is correct in asserting that it may be against our interests to encourage democracy.

This is because Sharansky is attempting to incite a democracy to belligerence (effectively if not explicitly) for the idealistic belief that other democracies will not launch wars based on ideology.

I believe the word is absurd.

Note to Pumkinhead: This is not what democracy is all about. This is what democracy is all about.
