Revolutions... Shades of RED

"The last end of the state is not to dominate men, nor restrain them by fear; rather, it is to set free each man from fear, that he may live and act with full security and without injury to himself or his neighbor . . . . The end of the state is really liberty"
Barach Spinoza [Walter Wriston]


In researching the North American Union, I came across a speech given by George W. Bush on June 6, 2005 to the OAS regarding the CAFTA agreement.  Throughout the speech, he clearly is praising the efforts to create a North American Union.  It's a speech that should be read by every American citizen.  But what caught my attention about the speech in particular was the reference to "color revolutions" and "freedom on the march around the world". 

The following is the excerpt from the speech that caught my attention:

"We come together at a great moment in history, when freedom is on the march around our world. In the last year-and-a-half -- think about this -- we've witnessed a Rose Revolution in Georgia, an Orange Revolution in Ukraine, a Purple Revolution in Iraq, a Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan, a Cedar Revolution in Lebanon -- and these are just the beginnings. Across Central Asia, hope is stirring at the prospect of change -- and change will come. Across the broader Middle East, we are seeing the rise of a new generation whose hearts burn for freedom -- and they will have it."

The following are a variety of articles on each of these "color revolutions" that George Bush was praising. 

Rose Revolution - Georgia

Orange Revolution - Ukraine

Cedar Revolution - Lebanon

Tulip Revolution - Kyrgyzstan
