"I see nothing wrong with advocating economic and political systems which are unprecedented in honoring and guarding the individuals and their inalienable rights."
___________________________________________________________________

You think that your economic and political systems are unprecedented in guarding individual rights. I agree with you. We both agree that your system is great, but my point is very few in this troubled region think that. The problem is that while this may be your rhetoric, you are currently engaged in propping up regimes which are none of the above. This means that when you start singing a song about love for freedom and democracy, everyone over here immediately accuses you of being inconsistent and hypocritical. In that sense everyone here would agree that "you don't call it like it is."

"Exactly who is bombing people into democracy?"

You are in Irq. Your stated aim is "regime change." Your method to achieve this is military. The reaction from this part of the world is outlined in the NYT article.
