The problem regarding wanting demoracy in the middle east is before "democracy" there must be "democrcy principles', which include Tolerance and non-beligerincy towards fellow democracies and respect for civilians' right to life. Absent these (which are prerequisites for the Civilized World) democracy would be a Dangerous thing, such as when Hamas ended up elected or Hezbollah got over 20 Lebanese seats. Under such circumstances "Occupation" is as appropriate as when the Allies occupied Nazi Germany or currently sent forces to Afghanistan. While some say when someone pubches on cheek turn the other for another punch (NT) those that survive duck and punch back.
