"The United States has no right, no desire, and no intention to impose our form of government on anyone else. That is one of the main differences between us and our enemies. They seek to impose and expand an empire of oppression, in which a tiny group of brutal, self-appointed rulers control every aspect of every life. Our aim is to build and preserve a community of free and independent nations, with governments that answer to their citizens, and reflect their own cultures. And because democracies respect their own people and their neighbors, the advance of freedom will lead to peace."
-George Bush, Feb. 2, 2005.
I'm not really openly political. I really don't understand this part. Is he saying we have no intention of imposing our form of government on others, but we are because democracy is more effective? Or he is saying that it's not our form of government because we have a democratic republic and that's not the same as the democracy they're using in Iraq?
