President Bush has stated that if any non-democratic country's people seek freedom, America will stand with them. Freedom and democracy, however, takes several forms. What kind of democracy and freedom should a country that has never enjoyed these experiences have? Explain your view as to the kind of democracy they deserve and weather in your view, it is suitable.

Everyone "deserves" a representative democracy and full freedom.
However, it's ignorant to expect any culture to suddenly adopt democracy after thousands of years of dictatorships and tribal alliances.
The word "democracy" implies that the people choose their own government. The U.S. has no right to dictate another country's form of government. We are wrong when we attempt to do so!
What do you think?
