Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sham elections, rigged elections, but elections.

By your definition, Bush is just as much a dictator as George W. Bush, as is every other leader of a western "democracy".

It's funny how "democracy" means "will of the people", presumably the people of the country holding the election.  Yet somehow everyone in western Europe holds the paternalistic attitude that they know best what kind of "democratic" political system should be imposed on the Belorussian people - again, for their own good.  They're just too stupid and backward to be able to elect their own leaders.
