Democracy is great, except when it isn't

From the CS Monitor (h/t The Angry Arab News Service)
"A million and a half Palestinians are learning the hard way that democracy isn't so good if you vote the wrong way. In 2006, they elected Hamas when the US and Israel wanted them to support the more-moderate Fatah. As a result, having long ago lost their homes and property, Gazans have endured three years of embargo, crippling shortages of food and basic necessities, and total economic collapse."
God forbid anyone vote "the wrong way" lest the international elites take offense and unleash starvation, aerial attacks with cluster bombs and white phosphorous, and tanks to plow under what little is left. All I can say is "the ballot or the bullet" y'all. Take away the ballot as the Israelis with the aid of the US government have done to the people living in Gaza, and .... let's say you can do the math.
