Benevolent dictatorship in Mauritania?
Now, I'm still extremely skeptical. I stand by my previous post, and I really don't think that a lot of progress will be made. But if Mauritania becomes a REAL democracy (which does not include Saddam Hussein style elections, where "vote or die" has a whole new meaning) then I will be very impressed. So, could there possibly be such a thing as a good military junta?
