Trouble With Puppet Governments
Why are Americans having so much trouble setting up governments in Afghanistan and Iraq to run things after they leave?
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
- They set up provisional governments whose primary function was to serve the interests of the USA, not the democratic interests of the occupied countries.
- The governments were made up of people willing to betray their country in return for bribes and power dispensed by the Americans. They are sort of people who have any interest in being a founding father of a new democratic republic.
- The provisional governments reflect American values not Islamic ones.
- The people of Afghanistan and Iraq have suffered mightily under the corrupt provisional governments and the America occupation. They will kill anyone associated with it as soon as the Americans leave. So, the corrupt officials will leave the country when the Americans leave and live in villas near by their Swiss bank accounts, leaving a power vacuum. For now, they are happy to dine on the American gravy train.
