Today's Domino Theory

The Domino Theory was originally put forth by Eisenhower and claimed that all of Southeast Asia would fall if we did not help the French in putting down the Viet Minh. But as history has shown, it was wrong.

But today, it has a new meaning. The Bush Doctrine (on the spread of freedom throughout the world) has theorized that once freedom takes hold in Afganistan and Iraq, it will spread to other countries. And it seems to be working.

The countries that have held free elections, since Bush took office:



The Ukraine

The Palestinian Authority

Saudi Arabia- Local elections Only, No Women Voters.

The countries where democratic movements are forming and growing:




Egypt-Agreed To Have MultiParty Election For President.



The world watched the pride of the Iraqi people as they faced danger just by casting their ballots. They watched them disregard the threats and voted. The world will be getting more restless for freedom, soon. The world longs for a chance at self-determination; so don't be surprised if you see other countries getting restless and demonstrating it, this summer.
