How to promote democracy

I usually don't agree with Brian Whitaker but the first of a promised series on democratic reform on the Middle East looks promising - Beware instant democracy.

He at least takes the Bush/Blair agenda of promoting democracy seriously even though he clearly disagrees with their methods. I've always maintained that those who opposed the Iraq war would have been better served by dealing with what Bush and Blair were actually saying rather than getting lost in conspiracy theories. Leave that to the Pilger/Fisk crowd.
