I'm am not anti-American or anything but it seems every nation we intervene for spreading democracy comes out in worse shape then before. If you believe we as Americans are good at spreading democracy to other nations, then accept the debate.

While I disagree with the goals of Capitalist Liberal Democracy the United States has a number of times successfully defended and supported the creation of Capitalist Liberal Democracy.

Alright I will make this short and sweet. It is really a historical debate.

1. The U.S. has been involved in a number of conflicts resulting in the establishment of a Liberal Democracy.
Examples:
-Libyan Civil War
-Invasion Of Iraq
-Gulf War(survival of Kuwaiti democracy)
-WW1(Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Turkey, and Austria gained limited or total representitave democracy)
-WW2(Japan,West Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxenbourg, France, and Demark.)

In addition to that I would also add South Korea was saved from Communism and later supported in becoming a Capitlaist Liberal Democracy. The same can be said of Taiwan, Thailand, and arguabley the strong NATO presence in Western Europe shattered the vibrant Communist movement after the defeat of Nazi Germany. Furthermore the United States has provided aide to nations on the path to democracy like Poland, East Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and later Russia her self.

All of the aforementioned countries the Untied States have either converted through war or aided via financial/millitary aide. All of which today are Capitalist Liberal Democracies to this day, a few of which are corrupt however they still meet the resolution. Thus it is easy to conclude the US is not horrible at spreading democracy.
