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?

  • Mar 26 2013: Yes we should, if the democracy is our religion - we should not look on the history, traditions, habits, religion of the country - we should push democracy (as we call it) of any kind in Egypt, Iraq, Syria etc.,etc... I remember crusaders and don't understand what the difference is - they also brought Christian progress to the nations with sword and fire.
