2010 most corrupt nation in the world report: War-hit countries 'most corrupt'? new Democracies? African nations?
War-hit countries 'most corrupt'
Russia most corrupt in the G20 Pakistan world's 34th most corrupt nation, Russia Ranked Among Most Corrupt Countries and Somalia, Afghanistan Top Corruption Index!
Report: Africa Tops World Corruption Rankings
Last year I started paying attention to the corruption index partly because democracies were not doing so well in it but primarily because every country we were involved in albeit in waror in forcing democracy on were amongst the worst on the list. Last year Afghanistan was next to the bootom on the list 2nd only to Somalia. A year later Afghanistan in the same position is on the bottom with Somalia, Burma, and Iraq. Now that is success! Afghanistan sinks in new corruption ranking as US, World Leaders Fall Short in Corruption Fight, Group Says!
What bothers me about the list is that recent efforts at forcing Democracy on Nations by Bush we know as failure but it is illustrated here. I know corruption has been around since the beginning of society and man. However, with the advent of George W and his corrupt underhanded Government in what he called an example of Democracy to be exported around the world the corruption and stolen power became the new standard.
Bush used what I coined as 3D politics taught by Karl Rove to achieve their goals. (3D politics = Deceitful, deceptive, divisive politics) It seems in every election in every country now we hear cries of fraud and corruption not just here in the US and more visibly in Iran during the June Presidential election. Why should we expect Afghanistan or anyone else to be any different? Check where your country ranks in the corruption index
Look at the example we have set for others to follow. I remember the feeling of shame when GW had the audacity to tell China they should aspire to a US style Democracy seeing our own broadcast daily corruption in what many of us believed was no longer a Democracy. Under Bush we became a Democracy in name only and were exporting that not just in the Middle East but around the world.
Stealing elections and corruptions is the standard in the world now. The destruction Bush rained on the US and world balance along with the example he set for the world to follow will affect the entire world for generations if not forever. That is why I can not forget what Bush did and people often tell me to get over it. He made sure he will go down in history!
