whidbey: The best thing the US can do is stay the fark out of other peoples' attempts at democracy.

We've done way too much meddling in other countries and their business.


The only dictator I can think of from the past 100 years whose position wasn't solidified by US meddling was Hitler.
Every other dictator(that I can remember) has at least a tangible connection to US meddling or the response to US meddling.  From Stalinists and our support of the white army, all the way through the ayatollahss, and our backing up of the Shah.  Meddling hasn't been good.

cman: Military coups are when the military takes over everything.

Handing Presidential power to a civilian isnt a coup, it is a Revolution.


They handed a title to a civilian, not power.

Knowing the difference could save you a few trillion dollars and American lives.
