[Editorial] July 16th: The West Doesn't Really Care About Democracy or Freedom - They Want Stability
Interesting conversation with Brian Williams. I couldn't have disagreed more with the former Turkish Prime Minister who was on right before me. The West said they were standing up for democracy. They don't really care about democracy nor freedom in the Middle East. They desperately want stability above all things. Think . . . Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran. The list goes on and on and on. To say the least, the West has a troubled history in the region and that behavior continues. Gotta give us credit for one thing . . . we are consistent.
