Those of us old enough to remember the Cold War, may well remember the 'Brezhnev Doctrine': to protect communism from outside influences and secure the centralised power of Moscow over its satellites. Bush's neo-socialist - ooops neo-conservative - doctrine is becoming to sound publically even more allied to good old commie thought. Just heard Bush's latest rallying call in Salt Lake City. I don't have a transcript, but a couple of lines went like this: Or, to put it another way: Iraq's independance, sovereignty and democracy is notional and to be confined strictly to what Washington will allow. Here are Brezhnev's words after the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968: In other words: Czechoslovakia's independance, sovereignty and democracy was notional and was confined strictly to what Moscow allowed. Just replace 'socialist' with 'democracy' and Bush's words bear striking resemblance to Brezhnev's!!!!
