Look who is Tony's new found friend! 

Here is Tonny Blair's new friend - Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. We are constantly told what all this is about in the Middle East is promoting democracy and freedom. Really ?!?!? Well when was the last time Qaddafi had an election? I can't recall any since he came to power in in a coup in 1969. And I don't believe he has any scheduled.

If the U.S. and Britain had any interest in promoting democracy in the Middle East they certainly don't lack for opportunities. They could cut off the billions of dollars of aid they give to the repressive regime in Egypt. They could quit supporting military coups in Algeria and Pakistan. They could have not put a monarch back on the throne in Kuwait.

Clearly they are not interested in promoting democracy. They are interested in protecting their interests.
