Is it all just Wilsonian?

John Ikenberry's article "Why Export Democracy?: The 'Hidden Grand Strategy' of American Foreign Policy'" is a well argued case that American foreign policy is centered around exporting its political system. Take up the white man's burden...

Why America would want the Arab's, for example, to be democratic is another puzzle entirely. Sounds more like a death wish than a noble sacrifice.
