Our invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan along with subsequent efforts to shove western democracy at them has gone so very well indeed, hasn't it? So well that Keith Ablow thinks we should strut around the world shoving it down everyone's throats!
Keith Ablow, a doctor and Fox News analyst, thinks that the United States should aggressively export its system of government to every single country on earth. What could go wrong?
In a comically unhinged column posted to Fox News' website on Tuesday, Ablow calls for an "American jihad" in which the U.S. would aggressively move to America-ify the entire world, which totally makes sense because "the Constitution is a sacred document that better defines and preserves the liberty and autonomy of human beings than the charter of any other nation on earth.
"How would this ambitious plan work? Well, Ablow explains, "we would tie American aid to incremental changes not just in the attitudes, but in the fundamental structures, of countries. These changes would move those countries, slowly but inexorably, toward reflecting our Constitution in their own charters." The plan would also involve doubling the budget for the CIA and Special Forces, presumably to counter any foolhardy resistance to American domination. There's more, but you get the idea.
I'd swear this is what Dubya and his evil twin Cheney tried. They were going to bring our 'exceptional' way of life to those primitive Mooslims. And steal their oil, of course.
Ablow just gets crazier with every appearance he makes. It's enough to make you wonder if he needs a psychiatrist.
