Colour ‘revolutions’

It’s easy to find fault with the leaders of forgien nations. It’s easy to be attracted by the feel good words of the opposition and forget how deeply embedded in the old guard the opposition is. It’s harder to understand that elections are a ritual, and that election disputes are battles among great powers, never on behalf of the people. However once that is understood it is easy to realize that when foreign interests unseat local powers, even despots, this is a projection of power, such a projection is expensive, and the price will be paid by the local people.
