Truly sad! It seems that a new government program is needed for this type of scenario…..a ‘newly created democracy’….which needs a lot of nurturing from respected current democracies. It appears that the main risk for a ‘newly established democracy’ is surviving the initial onslaught it faces from former ‘buddies’…..who hate to lose a former ‘partner in crime’ ….who may also have been a good former trading partner. IT must be really really tough for a new democracy to suddenly reject old allies and , now, face severe attacks. Extra careful strategy is needed to survive the initial onslaught from former ‘friends’.
