Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah right...I knew that you will not get my point right.
To be perfectly honest after living for more than 17 years in democracy (and here in Australia situation is much better then in many other western countries where politicians simply and plainly buy their place in power in an open way) I lost my trust that people are capable to really have democracy...anywhere...let alone in Russia where we all know what happened in last century.
Opposition in Russia have all rights in my view to protest and ask for real democracy. People have right to protest anywhere...We recently saw protests against Wall street that ended we all know how in USA and elsewhere in democracies. But what I hate is when western world is interfering in other people's business for the simple reason of interest of their elite. Now we see how "democracy" looks like in Iraq:
And we can only imagine Libya...no need to imagine anything about Afghanistan...
Just stay away and look in your own " yard" as we Serbs like to say....
Western lessons about democracy are so deadly...
