    because you need to analyze what goes wrong. this line of "well they always do this" is not good political analysis

    If you read my other posts in this thread, I have analyzed it. "Well they always do this" is not my argument.

    because trying to position your political ideology as morally superior is a stupid thing to do. "regimes" and "constitutional republics" both engage in the same actions
