Should we force democracy?

What I wanted to know is: do you think that democratic countries should force other countries to implement democracy? Don't you think that that is a flaw in the all idea of democracy?

    Who has a right to force their own ideologies & concepts onto another as all this creates is more animosity in the world; the UN has a lot to answer for in my mind.
