Bush’s Orwellian style Democracy

Only in the bizzaro Bush world does an unelected party get away with dismissing an elected government, appoint a new cabinet and get the blessing of Washington.

“The United States has decided to lift the siege and work with the new government,” the official said on condition of anonymity, citing a message passed to Abbas by the US Consul General in Jerusalem, Jacob Walles, during a meeting on Saturday.

Then again, this is hardly unusual given Washington’s love affair with dictators.

Reserving the right to decide who is fit to govern other countries must be one of those freedoms they hate us for.
