Bush wanted a Made to Measure Democracy , in which Secular US friendly Leaders who are ready to make peace with Israel are chosen.
when he saw that Algerians chose the Muslim party in 1991 (but cancelled ) the same in Bahrain , the Muslim brotherhood won seats in Egypt and jordan , the islamists won the elections in Comoros Islands and Palestine . He knew He cant allow Arabs and Muslims to have democracy , because they wont Choose US friendly Secular Leaders . so now he has given up and does not talk about Democracy anymore.

Even secular Chalabi did not make it in Iraq , but Abulaziz al Hakim and Hizb al Dawa .

And now they are punishing the Palestinians for choosing Hamas . they should have chosen Dahlan Pinochet .
