Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What does this "undeveloped" 3rd world landscape look like? I'll agree with the premise for a few of the big city slums, but for the rest of this country...that's a very shocking claim.

complete with a religious dictatorship

Bush has worked hard at blurring the line between church and state, but we're nowhere close to a religious dictatorship. I'm confused as to why Europeans so often make this claim, as the real examples of religious dictatorship in the middle east are in plain view.

The "aggressive military caste" is a far, far greater threat to this country and the world than any issue arising from a religious premise. Religion is nothing more than a symptom.

you are the media you consume.
